Audience Reviews for Why Man Creates

This somewhat experimental documentary about creativity by Saul Bass (best known for creating some movie posters and opening sequences for Hitchcock films) is an interesting and sometimes funny look at creativity and why people do it. It isn't really an in depth documentary, but more of an experimental look at the subject. The animation that starts it off is wonderful...the rest is sort of hit or miss.

interesting film. very odd, and almost drug trip inspired in cinematography and direction. however, it raised a good question, with a good discussion. overall i was really confused, but it was kind of entertaining

The most fun and creative short film ever. More people should know about it, but you can only seem to find it in college libraries. Here's a 5-minute clip: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=penl-HYfMCg
