Movie Info

Filmmaker Turk Pipkin sets out on a global journey to probe the minds of nine Nobel Laureates in this documentary that seeks to find answers to some of the most pressing issues currently facing mankind. Everyone wants the world to be a better place for our children and the future generations that will follow, but how do we work to improve a world where famine, warfare, and strife seem to be more widespread than ever before? Follow Pipkin to the far corners of the globe as he poses this question, and many others concerning the future of our troubled planet to such great minds as Rick Smalley, Steven Weinberg, Dr. Harold Varmus, Desmond Tutu, Sir Joseph Rotblat, Jody Williams, Amartya Sen, and Ahmed Zewail.

No offense to Pipkin and his real concerns, but a tougher questioner might have shed more light and heat.

It's about 40 IQ points dumber than the typical public television broadcast.

An amiably sincere and politely thought-provoking docu in which the peripatetic writer-director plays genial talk-show host to various Nobel Prize winners.

It is difficult to sustain an audience's interest with talking heads, and a few of the Nobel Laureates have trouble explaining concepts in terms that are easy to digest during a documentary.

If you like to have your brain (and your heart) engaged when you watch films, this is a documentary you don't want to miss and you don't have to be a Nobel Prize winner to see the value of it.

My advice would be to find a copy of this fantastic documentary, settle down for an 80-minute piece of enlightenment, and then maybe use its lessons to help make the world a better place.
