For once, an updated account that is not a mish mash of the same old recycled muck and rumors that have been repeated over the last 30 years because they sold media and fulfilled certain people's and groups agendas no matter how untrue they were.
The up close interviews of Werner Erhard (then and now)show a person who really just enjoys what he does (working on the subject of human potential and effectiveness and "making a difference" for others) and who visibly cares about all people.
Is "Transformation: The Life and Legacy of Werner Erhard" a great documentary? I don't think so. Is it a balanced and welcomed display about a decent hard working guy who was (is) committed to making a difference for others? Heck yes.
