Rating: 2/4 -- No offense to Pipkin and his real concerns, but a tougher questioner might have shed more light and heat. Full Review

Rating: 2/5 -- 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. Full Review
Apr 8, 2007
An amiably sincere and politely thought-provoking docu in which the peripatetic writer-director plays genial talk-show host to various Nobel Prize winners.

Rating: 4.5/5 -- 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. Full Review

Rating: 4/5 -- 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. Full Review

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