  • It is generally pungent and enlightening.

    June 19, 2013 | Full Review…
  • In this heady documentary, TV footage of left-wing social critic Paul Goodman being interviewed by conservative host William F. Buckley Jr. in 1966 makes one realize how low public discourse in America has sunk since then.

  • As documentaries go, it's an able introduction that doesn't make its subject nearly as relevant to our current discontents as it could.

  • The movie effectively uses Goodman's poems to illustrate his life.

    December 30, 2011 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • What makes him such an interesting biographic sketch for a film, however, is the way Goodman undercut his own successes.

Audience Reviews for Paul Goodman Changed My Life

  • Dec 08, 2011
    Goodman is a social commentator that I wasn't particularly knowledgeable about. He certainly played second fiddle to the Beat Generation and then later by Chomsky. I feel grateful for this film as a result. Goodman is certainly an intriguing guy and the film makers give him his adequate due.
