Storyline

Whether Noam Chomsky, the MIT linguist and political philosopher, is the most important intellectual alive, as the New York Times once famously called him, is open for debate. But without a doubt, Chomsky, now 73, is one of the most straight-talking and committed dissidents of our time. A steadfast critic of United States foreign policy for decades, in the aftermath of the terrorist attacks of September 11th, his profile took a quantum leap as he provided much-needed analysis and historical perspective to concerned citizens throughout the world. In the months that followed, he gave dozens of talks on four continents, conducted scores of interviews, and wrote a book 9-11 that was published in 22 countries and became a surprise bestseller in many of them, including Japan. Chomsky's voice may be unpopular, but his incisive arguments, based on decades of research and analysis, are heard and considered in this chronicle comprised of interview footage, and various talks he's given.

excellent material, but sloppy editing
27 May 2003 | by (Kobe, Japan) – See all my reviews

I'll admit up front that I'm a Chomsky fan and it is always wonderful to listen to this man speak. Having read many of his political books he didn't say anything that I didn't already know, but I still enjoy watching footage of his lectures because I don't have the chance to attend any. As he always does, Chomsky delivers straight forward, common sense deciphering of the events unfolding around us in easy to understand words. Unfortunately however the film isn't edited all that well. Many times they show Chomsky ending his lectures and the film feels like it is going to end. Then it starts up again at another lecture. I think 'Manufacturing Consent' was much more successful in the way they edited his various lectures together.
