Watch Noam Chomsky school Michel Gondry on life, and how we live it, in this trailer for IS THE MAN WHO IS TALL HAPPY?!
Papa Vinyard here, now here's a little somethin' for ya...
Call it, MY DINNER WITH CHOMSKY…IN PICTURES. Michel Gondry's latest film is an animation/live-action hybrid depicting an extended conversation between Gondry and 84-year-old philosopher Noam Chomsky. The ideas presented here, matched with Gondry's expressive animation style, make it seem like this could be an excellently provocative meditation on life and how we live it in a similar way as Louis Malle's ANDRE was 30 years ago. While this might be obscure and tough to watch even by Gondry's typical arthouse crowds, it looks like a fascinating project, with the animation rendering the heavily-cerebral chatter into something truly cinematic. I'm glad it's getting a theatrical release; it could've easily been ignored as a curiosity on HBO or another cable outlet, but the run should increase its profile. Personally, I'm excited to make a night out of going out with some friends, seeing the film, and discussing it afterwards.
My favorite Gondry work usually comes about when he really lets his unfettered imagination run wild, and it's awesome that he's balancing his "typical" feature films with even more oddball pieces like this. More Chomsky and less Seth Rogen for Gondry, I say (with all due love to Seth).
IS THE MAN WHO IS TALL HAPPY? We find out on November 22nd.
