Special Features


Editorial Reviews

Architect, engineer, geometrician, cartographer, philosopher, futurist, inventor of the famous geodesic dome and one of the most brilliant thinkers of his time. Fuller was renowned for his comprehensive perspective on the world s problems. For more than five decades he developed pioneering solutions reflecting his commitment to the potential of innovative design to create technology that does "more with less" and thereby improve human lives. He spent much of his life traveling the world lecturing and discussing his ideas with thousands of audiences. Now more relevant than ever, this film captures Fuller's ideas and thinking told in his own words.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bucky Speaks -- Dare to be naive August 15, 2010
By Philip
Verified Purchase
I give this DVD a top rating because I love to see and listen to Buckminster Fuller speak about everything wondrous and compelling that one can also read about through his books: Synergy, the beauty of nature's principles and basic structures, physics, metaphysics, humanity's apparent purpose in the universe, the "a priori infinite mystery" of Universe (and Humans in Universe) and so much more. This piece consists of film clips mostly from the late '60s and early '70s of Bucky in various outdoor and indoor settings, talking about the ideas and interests that have inspired and informed his own sense of purpose and individual vitality. The film is mostly him speaking -- "thinking out loud," as he would say, although there is also plenty of older footage of his inventions of the '30s and '40s with effective voice overs of him speaking. There is no narrator, which I find particularly refreshing because it allows the mood to breathe, so to speak, the aura of Bucky and the beautiful ideas that animated his life. What also comes through in this film is the character and genius of the man who "dared to be naive," and who made it the task of his life to begin anew in the "new life of the child," as though nearly every cultural determination in him had been suspended for the sole purpose of apprehending freshly the principles and structures of nature and the universe. So I would say that if you like Buckminster Fuller's writings and you enjoy seeing and hearing him speak, this documentary is highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars a genius January 10, 2011
Verified Purchase
Great film,
gives a good portrait of Bucky Fuller, &
all the talking is done by Fuller himself.
He was certainly a genius and visionary,
and I think he is too little known, and not really given all the credit he is due.
A must see for anyone interested in his work and ideas.
