Decide for yourself
26 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This post is in response to a previous post with the title "weak effort." I'm the director of the movie so I won't state my opinion here and I will rate it 5 to be fair. The movie is based on the multimedia lecture Dr. Leary performed around the world in the early 90s. The previous post states, "Leary's script does not really contain much of interest." Here is a quote from the movie. See for yourself whether you find this interesting or not:

"Then came Marshall McCluhan, in the 1950's. McCluhan said, in the Socratic sense, 'The medium is the message.' The words you use, the modes of communication you use determine the realities you inhabit. Most of our lives, most of us live in realities determined by others, imprinted in our brains by education, by religion, by politics, by the authorities. McCluhan said, 'If you want to change your mind, change the medium.' Change the words you use. Change the mode of communication. If you change the medium, you change yourself. You change your society."
