Storyline

Lauded as the most influential thinker of the Western world, psychology professor Jordan Peterson has become a polarizing paradox. After sparking both outrage and support for his stand against Canadian human rights legislation in late 2016, Peterson quickly transformed into a famous public intellectual and internationally best-selling author. SHUT HIM DOWN offers an intimate look into the controversy that started over alternate gender pronouns and left us with two stories about Peterson: Is he a heroic cultural warrior who pushes boundaries and transforms people's lives for the better? Or is he a bigoted peddler of regressive ideas that cause harm? Written by Holding Space Films

The most intentionally misunderstood man in the media
20 December 2018 | by aric-millionSee all my reviews

I'm a big Jordan Peterson fan. I was very surprised the diligence the film maker took in creating this documentary and following him. I was expecting a total character assassination but it was surprisingly balanced. I thought it could have held him in a better light because I really do feel the underlying message is helping people make good decisions. I think he's more self help guru but his fame comes through his contentious debates with the leftist activists. If you watch his videos on YouTube, you would know how much better the trans activist would do if she just broke ideology and tried his way of thinking for a while. Sad really.
