Is the Man Who Is Tall Happy?
Written and directed by Michel Gondry
On first blush, a so-called “animated conversation” between a documentary filmmaker and the esteemed linguist and philosopher Noam Chomsky seems to exist solely so people can raise their eyebrows, perplexed. But then, when you realize that the filmmaker is Michel Gondry, the man behind such whimsical and quirky films as Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind and The Science of Sleep, it all begins to make a bit more sense. There’s, perhaps, not much more to Is the Man Who Is Tall Happy? aside from Gondry’s hand-drawn interpretations of every topic Chomsky covers in a series of interviews that have been boiled down to about 90 minutes’ worth of footage, but his knack for visualization ends up being what makes the film so unique and special at all.
