The documentary begins with a fascinating introduction to its subject and his many revolutionary contributions. It's hard not to be caught up in the man's brilliance, impressed by his creations, and intrigued by his vision for man's evolution. As a biography, "Transcendent Man" works tremendously well. But as the movie progresses, it becomes clear that Kurzweil is abundantly obsessed with two concepts--achieving immortality through science and reviving his long dead father by computer programming and artificial intelligence. The second half of the picture evolves into science fiction. There is something both disturbing and touching seeing him contemplate rebuilding his father through old journal entries and documentation.
The final argument of the film is about the nature of man's future.Read more ›

Interesting documentary about Ray Kurzweil. He leans a little too far toward the spectrum of technology can cure everything for me, but he definitely has his finger on the pulse... Read morePublished 4 months ago by tman

This is wa great video with balanced presentation of opinions about the theses. If only 50% of what Kurzweil predicts is achieved it will be a turning point in human history.Published 5 months ago by Abdurrahman Warsameh
Boring movie. Took a topic that could've been read about in less than 20 minutes and dragged it out for well over an hour.Published 6 months ago by Kenneth Orton
