It was intellectually appealing.
31 July 2003 | by See all my reviews

I watched the program on PBS. I also was not exposed to Gore prior to this viewing but growing up, had seen some of his interviews on the Dick Cavett Show and other like shows during the 70's and later. I didn't have the adult perception of the world then, obviously, but I do remember thinking that as an adult I might like to read some of his works and expose myself to what ideas he promoted and believed in so strongly. After watching on PBS I am going to commit myself to reading his works which are timely and relevant even now. He was a true mind.
