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 ›

Once Netflix took this offline, it was actually pretty hard to find a decent version of the film, so buying the film was the only option to re-watch. Read morePublished 6 days ago by JCW
Really great movie. There's a thin line between being crazy and being labeled a genius. This guy is clearly a genius. A bit crazy to think that immortal is a possibility though.Published 2 months ago by Corbin Peyton
Provokes some pretty heavy thinking about where we are headed and what technology may do for our health in the future.Published 3 months ago by Julie
not exactly revelatory --more like a good A&E documentary. But not uninformative. A good primer on the skewed mind of Ray Kurzweil.Published 5 months ago by Excellent Dry Verb
A little bit slow paced, could be more exciting and dramatic but it was not. Mostly people talking, talking, talking. But you get an idea of the amazing future that's coming up.Published 5 months ago by Roy
