5.0 out of 5 stars Chomsky Rocks!, March 19, 2005
This review is from: Noam Chomsky - Rebel Without a Pause (DVD)
Chomsky is not for everyone. This film was on the film festival circuit and I was lucky enough to see it twice (I admit to liking Chomsky's voice). Here is a man that is smart, articulate, well read and passionate. With so much spin in the media its nice to get a refreshing and frank assessment of the world from someone who is still passionate about our society. I have seen a few Chomsky films (he can have his own film festival now) and "Rebel Without A Pause" is probably the most current and relevant. "Manufacturing Consent" was great but its fifteen years old now and East Timor isn't an issue these days. "Rebel Without A Pause" has Chomsky waxing poetic on 9-11, Iraq, US global imperialism and about organizing and the role of the media in western society. All important stuff. This film breaks each down into specific topics so if you aren't interested in something you can move to the next section. What is really interesting is how others perceive him which refreshingly in this film makes it more about Chomsky and his passions then just about what he's writing about. This film could easily be a film companion to "Hegemony or Survival" and "9-1"' (Chomsky's latest books) as the film covers both of those books in quite detail. This film is worth checking out. I can't rate the DVD extras as I haven't seen the DVD yet, but the film is great and you don't have to really know Chomsky to be able to watch it. In fact, this film may be the best way to get to know his work.
