A historical drama set in Roman Egypt, concerning a slave who turns to the rising tide of Christianity in the hope of pursuing freedom while falling in love with his mistress, the famous philosophy and mathematics professor Hypatia of Alexandria.
For what this movie sets out to achieve, I give it my highest rating.
Dunning has successfully packaged the topic of critical thinking (something that is sorely lacking in this world) as a palatable and somewhat entertaining film. He focuses on the tools needed to safely navigate the sea of mis/disinformation in an effort to save people their health, money and sometimes their reputation.
I find quantumway5's negative review of this film quite humorous as he misses its point completely in a struggle to cling to his blind-faith-based beliefs. Anyone who feels this movie is misleading in any way probably has a financial stake in one or more of the myths this film helps people examine more carefully and with a skeptical eye. The fact that the move is free and readily available for download also reveals the intent of its creator: to educate, enlighten and improve the lives of its audience.
