Philosophy in Film: Examined Life

Next in our series of open discussions about philosophy in film is a documentary directed by Astra Taylor.

Film’s power is in the spectacle. As an event that is seen or witnessed, it becomes an object that is impressive, unusual, or disturbing. Thus some say cinema belongs up on the big screen. Yet, homebound and riding out the violent storms also presents a suitable mood to watch a film in more intimate settings and since the film is mainly talking heads, I feel smaller screens may be substituted for larger ones. Stay dry, check it out, and reply what you think about the flick.
