On paper, Chomsky and Gondry seem like an eternal mismatch, but these two very smart people share an odd but genuine chemistry ...
Probably of interest only to those viewers who, like Gondry himself apparently, already have an obsession with Chomsky.
What emerges from the chats and the drawings and the animation is an often-fascinating glimpse at both genius and the creative process (itself a kind of genius, after all). If it sounds boring, it isn't. If it sounds weird, it is - but weird in a good way.
Tthe onscreen result is a striking inquiry into how we comprehend the world, neatly divided between a man of words and a man of images
An almost entirely hand-drawn, animated film that was clearly a labor of love for the director and has enough charm to reach a wider audience than his other recent docs.
Weaves between clear representations of what's discussed and beautiful abstract expressionism.
Gondry's style, primitive but inventive, brings ideas to life.
We are watching two very fascinating, very different minds interact, and the result is a bit inspiring.
Reveals a comfortable Gondry on the film work. [Full review in Spanish]
The result is a stop-motion animation that, by their color, dynamic and originality, is quite attractive visually. [Full review in Spanish]
I only wished the well-meaning documentary would have been less cutesy and opened up more doors into Chomsky's progressive thinking.
Some of the film's best and most revealing moments see Gondry trying to get a slightly wary Chomsky to leave his comfort zone of cerebral conjecture and open up about his emotional life.
