Stupidity

Categories: Documentary, History
1hr 17min | 2003
Stupidity sets out to determine whether our culture is hooked on deliberate ignorance as a strategy for success. From Adam Sandler to George W. Bush, from the IQ test and TV programming to the origins of the word moron, Stupidity examines the "dumbing down" of contemporary culture. Featuring opinions and comments from cultural figures, authors, and academics including John Cleese, Noam Chomsky, Selma Hayek, and Bill Maher, Stupidity reveals that despite our cultures extensive access to knowledge and information, humans continue to choose stupidity.

Films that center on sex or violence aren't necessarily stupid. It's certainly possible to write an intelligent film on either subject. Take 'The Thin Red Line,' for example: violent and intelligent.

Decent and long-overdue treatment of a desperately-important topic.
