not a very good documentary, but it covers a subject that should be explored with more depth. as the title indicates it’s about stupidity in society. the subject is great fodder for a documentary, but they don’t do it justice. much of the problem is the haphazard presentation and poor production. it relies far too much on dramatizations and not enough on primary material. it’s probably a copyright issue or something, but with more work they could have found some free stuff to use instead of the cheap dramatizations that they use over and over and over again.
the experts are the same as you’re used to seeing if you watch a lot of leftist documentaries on the downfall of society or the bush administration (pretty much the same thing). noam chomsky and mark crispin miller always seem to end up in these films for some reason. could have been infinitely better.
