Overview

Activist, linguist, and dissident thinker Noam Chomsky was once described by The New York Times as "the most important intellectual alive," and has gained both passionate admirers and vehement detractors for his outspoken speeches and writings on United States foreign policy. From the Vietnam War to the post-9/11 conflict in Iraq, Chomsky has bravely confronted the failings of America's policies abroad, and examined how the nation's political decision-making process is frequently compromised in a manner that does not benefit the people. Noam Chomsky: Rebel Without a Pause is a documentary which looks at the work of this outspoken activist, focusing on the issues of post-9/11 terrorism and the growing sentiment against Americans around the globe; the film also includes contributions from fellow activists and Carol Chomsky, Noam's wife and tour manager.

    Surprisingly Refreshing

    Great film. If you like Chomsky you'll love it. If you don't like Chomsky you'll probably still be impressed. Saw it on TV last year in Canada. Hopefully we can get it in Canada when it gets released.

    Eye Opener

    I can start by saying I have never read any of Chomsky's many books. I saw this film because my friend was a big fan and it was at a film festival. I went in and 90 minutes later my view of the world had changed. This film (or Chomsky) really opened my eyes to what has happened since September 11th. He also tells about how Saddam Hussein was a big trading partner and arms buyer from the US up until the day he invaded Iraq. I was shocked to learn that. And that Saddam only became public enemy #1 after he (as Chomsky says) "disobeyed orders from Washington". This film has lots of great moments. Check it out if its playing in your area.
