Is the Man Who is Tall Happy? Rebecca-Barry'S REVIEW
Ouch. Sore brain. What else would you expect from this challenging and visually over-stimulating meeting of two of our most distinguished thinkers? In animating his conversation with Noam Chomsky, film-maker Michel Gondry finds unexpected parallels between academia and art, his nutty illustrations helping to make sense of Chomsky’s views on life, linguistics and everything in between. Given the concentration required to keep up with his often paradoxical ideas, and Gondry’s kaleidoscopic visuals, it’s no wonder this is mind-blowing. So much so I had to periodically look away from the screen.
