Documentary / English

An inventive new way of probing perennial questions about language and the mind.

This new work by the endlessly exploratory Michel Gondry (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind) is an inspired, hand-drawn animation set to a series of conversations between Gondry and philosopher/linguist Noam Chomsky. As Chomsky patiently recounts his life and discusses his views on language acquisition and memory, Gondry translates his words into a stream of playful, constantly morphing imagery. Great fun for both the eyes and the mind. [PG]
