Great documentary
26 September 2010 | by See all my reviews

Being in the World is an extremely thought provoking and inspiring documentary. Tao Ruspoli has done a wonderful job of making philosophy interesting and relevant. The inspiration for the film, Hubert Dreyfus, is a truly intriguing master of his own domain of teaching. All the professors and 'masters' interviewed are dynamic and riveting in their own right. The 'masters' feature a wide array of people, from a soul food chef to a Japanese carpenter, and each boast a different world view. This film is sure to be a conversation starter, with it's provocative view on technology's role in our world. Even so, the film does not come off as preachy and manages to make room for a wide range of ideas and beliefs.Being in the World gives us a little hope for a world that is increasingly technology driven.
