Storyline

A rare, intimate glimpse into the life and mind of Jordan Peterson, the academic and best-selling author who captured the world's attention with his criticisms of political correctness and his life-changing philosophy on discovering personal meaning. Christened as the most influential public intellectual in the western world, University of Toronto psychology professor Jordan Peterson skyrocketed to fame after he published a controversial viral video series entitled "Professor Against Political Correctness" in 2016. Within 2 years, he sold over 3 million copies of his self-help book, 12 Rules For Life, and became simultaneously branded by some as an academic rockstar selling out theatres around the world, and by others as a dangerous threat to progressive society. THE RISE OF JORDAN PETERSON intimately traces the transformative period of Peterson's life while visiting rare moments with his family, friends and foes who share their own versions of the Jordan Peterson story.

Character-Driven Film - Not Issue-Based
15 October 2019 | by graciwestSee all my reviews

You don't have to like Jordan Peterson to appreciate this film. This is a look into the life and logic of a man who has experienced rapid-onset fame for drawing an unpopular line in the sand.

If a person hasn't already decided what they think about Jordan Peterson they will ask you this question, "Is he good or bad? Dangerous or benevolent?" Though this film doesn't try to answer that question, I believe that it does.

It answers as he would--Yes.
