Format: DVD
This is a great film, pure and simple. And it is a great film because of its purity and its simplicity. Director Turk Pipkin relentlessly travels the globe to find answers to the very difficult questions regarding man's survival here on earth. In his travels he interviews nine Nobel Prize winners, some with complex answers to Pipkin's question, and others with a very simple view on our reality. The interviews are quite riveting, combines with superior cinematogrophy, and editing make this film a must see. And will get the viewer asking, "What can I do?"

Director Turk Pipkin realizes there are many problems with the world. To find the solutions to those problems, he does not go to politicians or corporations. He instead tries something new, and asks some smart people: Nobel Laureates. He travels the world, and finds surprisingly simple solutions to some of the worlds greatest troubles. After seeing how easy it is to do something that could be so great, you will feel compelled to act.

Format: DVD
This movie should be seen by the whole family, especially the kids. Even though kids under 12 might have a few problems understanding some of the "big words" used by the nobel laureates, they will understand enough of it to make it worth while. I was afraid this movie might be a bit too preachy or overly sentimental but I was wrong. It fundamentally gives us hope in humanity. The one thing that makes this really diverse group of Nobel prize winners similar is their optimism, even though they all are facing in one way or the other, very difficult and complex problems. What struck me was that Nobel prize winners are not necessarily genius types (although being a genius is helpful) but some of them are just ordinary people doing extraordinary things. I was particularly struck with the African lady, winner of the Nobel peace prize, who started a simple movement that resulted in the planting of over 3 million trees by mostly impoverished women.

This film deserves every accolade, should win prizes, but I'm afraid it could be forgotten due to all the hype surrounding so many other films. Unlike Al Gore and Michael Moore, who are masters of promotion, Turk Pipkin is just a gentle man trying to present serious issues in a fairly entertaining format. Perhaps high school teachers will pick up this film and make it a centerpiece of classroom discussions, but I think it is mostly appropriate as a family experience.

Frankly, I thought "Nobelity" might be a bit boring, when I first heard about it. But, no, it's an absolutely fascinating title that offers answers to some of the world's pressing problems from a number of Nobel prize winners (and who is better qualified!). I wish they had taken on the world's biggest problem, tobacco, a drug which kills 5,000,000 users and hundreds of thousands more innocent people (that breathed toxic tobacco smoke) around the world every year, but maybe they can do that in the next edition.

great film...the production and cinematography were not very impressive, but the concept was inspired and the messages of the Nobel winners was informative and wonderful...Overall very inspirational, but it doesn't quite hold up to being watched over and over...
