Is the Man Who Is Tall Happy?

Is The Man Who Is Tall Happy?: An Animated Conversation With Noam Chomsky
France | 2013 | Michel Gondry

Is the Man Who Is Tall Happy?

This amazing “doctoon" in the tradition of Waking Life animates a conversation between filmmaker Michel Gondry (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, The Science of Sleep) and philosopher/linguist/activist Noam Chomsky. As the two men talk—about their pasts, the origins of language, and other heady topics—Gondry amplifies Chomsky's ideas with free-flowing doodles, sketches, and other visual flights of fancy that illustrate, embroider, and comment on what he is hearing (and sometimes understanding). "An inspired meeting of idiosyncratic minds...Simultaneously light-hearted and thought-provoking." -Variety. "A dazzler...A film to see and then to see again." -Village Voice.
