The Unbelievers (2013)
Very interesting views, but just a so-so documentary
Deeply intelligent world-changers such as Krauss and Dawkins deserve a better documentary than this. If I were to rate their thoughts and views on the world and on science vs religion, I'd easily give this film a 10. But since I am rating the documentary and NOT their views I can only give The Unbelievers a weak 5 out of 10.
The documentary doesn't share any new knowledge, any interesting new facts or any conversations beyond the most simple interviews, etc.
Anyone on the hunt for deeper knowledge will be disappointed. I really have no idea what the film makers tried to tell the viewer?
PS. All the celebrities featuring in the cast list are just a smoke screen. They don't share anything of value and are only on screen for 1-2 minutes combined. DS.
I recently saw Jindabyne in Cannes and it is a brilliant movie. Thanks to a wonderful cast and Ray Lawrence the script comes alive on the screen.
Four fishing buddies find a dead girl in the river. They don't report their find until a few days later. This causes anger and disappointment from their families and the rest of the town; reactions they don't seem capable of understanding.
Byrne and Linney, especially, turn every line and every second into an intense moment. They're human beings, and it shows. You understand why their characters act like they do, but you don't always accept it.
