Praise for the Film: "An invigorating introduction to one of the least soporific of American minds." - The New York Times "A juicily subversive biographical/philosophical documentary bristling and buzzing with ideas - it may have you groping in vain for the remote control to rewind back to the last thought. [It] is politically and intellectually potent, even infuriating, whether you agree with Chomsky or disagree with him." - The Washington Post "Challenging without being wild-eyed, controversial without stooping to aphorism. What we have here is the unravelling of ideas at a pace neither brisk nor languorous, listen carefully and you can easily follow the thread." - The Globe and Mail "An immensely accomplished, entertaining examination of the man and his ideas." - The Philadelphia Enquirer "A sparky and provocative portrait." - The Guardian "A gem of a biography" - The Sunday Times
