A brilliant film exploring the Western world's "crisis of perception." Through a chance encounter three characters, a politician (Sam Waterston), a poet (John Heard) and a theoretical physicist (Liv Ullman) explore the nature of the universe and how an outdated understanding of the world has led to our inability to solve our complex social problems. Based on the book "The Turning Point" by physicist Fritjof Capra (who also wrote the screenplay).
To watch this film you must abandon conventional wisdom about movies. This is not a film for people who watch Duece Bigalow and Armageddon. Not only is the movie an intelligent exploration into the human mind and science, politics, and poetry. But it is also an exploration into the mechanics of conversation and the meaning of life. The addition in the title of A Film For Passionate Thinkers rings completely true. The musical score is a relaxing piece. The conversation flows naturally from topic to topic, point to point person to person.
If you enjoyed the films My Dinner With Andre, Waking Life, Before Sunrise and Before Sunset you'll love Mindwalk.
