Movie Reviews

MYSTICAL, MESMERIZING AND MAGICAL.
Robin Simmons | Palm Springs area, CA United States | 02/15/2002
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Since documentaries are featured as extras on many DVDs, there's a growing appetite for this cinematic art form. Criterion is feeding that craving with a series of fascinating glimpses into extraordinary real lives.

"ME & ISAAC NEWTON" is a wonderful companion piece to Ron Howard's critically acclaimed "A Beautiful Mind," answering the question of why science matters. Award-winning director Michael Apted ("Coal Miner's Daughter"), explores the inner worlds of seven scientists in this captivating documentary that looks at the life and influence of a giant who saw the cosamic riddle as evidence of the hand of God who was at the controls of a mechanistic world.

By the way, Isaac Newton wrote more on the riddles of Biblical prophecy than he did on mathematics! He was remarkable and so is this great little documentary that is way to short in length and on the facets of this incredib;le man who changed our world views."
