Nobody has managed to topple Einstein's theory of relativity, even though it leads to the shocking conclusion that most of the universe must be made of a mysterious form of invisible matter that nobody has observed. Now physics stands at a crossroads. Some of the sharpest brains in physics have dedicated their lives to search for this "dark matter" while others are working on a new theory of gravity. Chasing Einstein follows leading scientists around the world, and to the edge of the universe.

I was very surprised to see a documentary on the life and career of Einstein that was more than 20 years old. I remember seeing a film about Einstein and his career many years ago, and even more recently, the movie Einstein about his work with the atomic bomb and his fame in the early 20th century. This film is on the other hand, a very "small" movie that is not very detailed and does not focus on a specific career. The film was filmed in Montreal, and the effects of the location (like the old buildings) did not look like the ones we usually see. In this documentary, we see the work of Einstein's personal assistants and the fact that he was able to conduct his work on time. I think that the documentary does not do the work of the man very well. I do not understand why, even though the man was a genius, the docu-dramas and movies he directed did not "grow" in popularity, which is a shame, because they are very interesting and they do show the man's life and work, and that is very important. My vote is seven, because the movie is not very good. My vote is also for the docu-dramas, because they are a great way to show the work of a great man.

I never did like the fact that the title of this documentary seemed to be something like "Rigged" or something, because it reminded me of a movie called "Rigged" and it reminded me of how stupid that movie was. I did like the fact that the title reminded me of Rigged. I also liked the fact that this documentary was made before the first of the two big box office hits of the year, "The Great Wall", and was made by the same people who were involved with the making of the movie. "Rigged" is actually more about the business side of film-making, which is all the stories and information that is contained in the two big box office hits of the year, and I think it's a very important and interesting documentary. It was good to see the amazing new skills and techniques that are now available to filmmakers and also the great work of the old school film-makers who are still out there and are doing great work. It was interesting to see how the whole process of making a film has changed, and there are so many new ways to do things. I really liked that the director made it look like there is no way to say or see a scene that you want to, and instead it was a lot of simple shots that are followed by a quick edit that gives you a quick cut that you can just switch to the next scene. That was very interesting to see. I also liked that they showed a lot of clips from the film, and I think it was really cool to see some of the scenes that are not in the movie. I think it was also good to see how the technology of film has changed over the years and what the process of making a film was like in the 20's, 30's and 40's. I also thought that they showed some of the creative process that was used to make the film, and I also liked that they did not talk about the use of certain elements of film, and I thought that it was very interesting to see what was used in the first film. I also liked that the director and producer didn't talk about their film at all, and I thought that was very interesting. I think that this was a very important documentary, and I think that the director and producer did a great job. It is a very important documentary and I think that it is well worth watching.

This film is a fascinating exploration of what it would be like to live in the near future. They play all sorts of videos and toys on the big screen. I don't know what they're talking about. I'd love to know what they're talking about. There's a guy in a wheelchair. He's got a really cool robot. His name is Clarence. They show clips from all sorts of toys and videos and stuff. What are they talking about? I don't know. Maybe I should go see this film.

I'm sorry, but I'm a huge fan of Steven Spielberg's work, and for him to share his thoughts about the lack of respect in movies, especially from younger filmmakers, is totally awesome. Especially as the film is made on Spielberg's 40th birthday. He talks about the early days of the movie industry, when movie makers were just trying to make money. He talks about the political climate that still exists today. The interviewer asking about the government's responsibility in the production of a movie is as relevant today as it was when he spoke in 1983. It was a great documentary, and it is a great interview with a very prolific filmmaker. I'm not saying that his opinions will necessarily be to your liking, but if you're a fan of Spielberg's work, it's a great documentary.

What a shock to discover how it is to be a kid at the end of WWII, to come home and see that some of the people you loved were no longer alive and your mother wasn't well enough to care. We see how some of the surviving relatives cope with this sudden loss, and then we meet the ones who want to forget about it. I was reminded of how it was to be a child during the war, and how life was a struggle, especially with only one language spoken at home, not only being German, but also English, and how difficult it was to deal with the loss of a parent. What happened to all of the children who were killed? How did their surviving relatives deal with this? The film is based on a book of the same name. It is nice to see how one can put together some things that can make a story and then make the story a little bit longer. What I really enjoyed about this film was that it was not at all uplifting or partisan, just something that the storytellers tried to tell. The film was an amazing look at the lives of a few dozen people at the end of WWII. It made me cry, and it made me think, and it made me feel like I was alive. I was lucky enough to get the movie at a showing in Los Angeles, and it was a wonderful evening.

This is a great documentary about one of the greatest scientists in the world, Albert Einstein. The film opens with the fact that Einstein was very embarrassed and ashamed to admit his discovery of General Relativity to the world. This leads to the meeting of Einstein and Stephen Hawking, the two of whom were so close, that they became very close friends. They are also discussing the history of science and its importance. The two of them discuss Einstein's ideas on Relativity and he states that if you want to learn to think and learn something about life you have to learn about the universe. The two of them discuss these ideas and then the documentary is over. It is then about 15 years later that Einstein comes up with the theory of Special Relativity. He tells the history of how he discovered the theory of relativity and also the significance of his discovery of General Relativity. After all of that, the documentary is over. This is a great documentary. It has some really interesting subjects. One of the most interesting topics is the meaning of life. The film also discusses the problems that people who are learning to think and learn about the universe have, which is why they are learning. They are learning about the meaning of life, which is why they are learning. The problems that people who are learning to think have are also why they are learning. They are learning to think about how they should live their life. Finally, the film discusses the discovery of the Higgs Boson and the significance of this discovery. This is also a great documentary. It is informative, entertaining, and the main subjects are the three subjects mentioned above. Overall, this is a great documentary. It is not just for people who are interested in physics. It is for all people interested in the history of science and the meaning of life.

I watched this movie with a bunch of my friends on a Saturday night, and we all really enjoyed it. The first half is what I would call the boring part, but once the scientists make their breakthrough it's a different story. The first half is almost non-stop hype, the second half is a little slow but does its job, and the last half is pure entertainment. As for the movie itself, it's a fascinating look into the life of Einstein. Einstein was a unique person, and the movie shows how unique he was. I think this movie is one of the best documentaries I have ever seen, and I am now eagerly awaiting the second one. Highly recommended.

I must confess, I was a little reluctant to watch this film, and a lot of people didn't think I'd understand it. I didn't. The plot is really interesting, and I really enjoyed watching the way the director made this film. I think there are many people who have a hard time understanding it. So I'll try to explain it for them. As a historical documentary, the film is really interesting and thought provoking. It takes a look at the relationship between Einstein and his grandfather, Max Planck, and the difficulties that arose when Planck realized that he was not just a good scientist but was also a genius. The conflict is also very much present in Einstein's life. The film does not focus on the scientific details of his theories, but rather on the ethical, philosophical, and philosophical questions that arise when dealing with the use of science in everyday life. I recommend this film to people who want to learn more about Einstein and his theory of relativity.

This is a documentary about two theoretical physicists: Carl Sagan and Neil deGrasse Tyson, who are not on the same page when it comes to their political views. In this documentary, Carl Sagan, in a moving interview, answers questions about his political views, as well as his relationship with Neil deGrasse Tyson. Carl Sagan is a good interviewer, but in this interview he answers some questions as if they were not intended. In fact, the questions are about his own views on politics, and he answers them as if they were not intended. For example, Sagan answers the question about his views on socialism, saying that he was not a socialist himself, but he thinks it is a mistake to support a socialist government. The interview is wonderful, and it is an excellent documentary on the political views of Carl Sagan. I am glad that Carl Sagan is able to answer some of the questions in this interview. Sagan does not want to speak on political matters, so he does not do so in this interview. However, the interview is a good documentary on Carl Sagan's views on politics.

This film gives a good look at a man who has been labeled the "maths guy" by a lot of people. The story is really intriguing and I really enjoyed the amount of footage that was shown. It wasn't boring and it was interesting. It gave me a good sense of what they were trying to say. The film also gave me a sense of how bad the comments on the internet have been and how they try to defend Einstein. It's just one of those documentaries that I would recommend. It has a good flow, good story, good camerawork, good editing, good sound quality. I liked the fact that they didn't have a ton of narration. This is a good documentary to watch if you want to know more about math and relativity.

Some people seem to like this documentary. It's a rather pleasant watch. However, it's pretty much all a bunch of so-called "scientists" talking about a subject that's not really talked about in the media. I think I'd be much more interested in this documentary if I hadn't been told about the "discoveries" and how the media reacted to them. No, that's not all. It's also full of interviews with people who actually knew Einstein and tried to persuade him to do something with his life, to just let go of the idea that he was a genius. One interviewee goes so far as to say that the only thing that got Einstein to reconsider his theories was that his wife wouldn't let him leave the house alone at night. I'm not saying that Einstein was crazy or that the film makers did anything wrong. I'm just saying that it's not very helpful to know that the best and most powerful minds of our time are running around talking about Einstein and his theories. I mean, Einstein did say that the world was round. He wasn't crazy about that. He also said that he was very interested in the theory of relativity and that if you knew something about it, you could say that Einstein was crazy. So, in other words, don't listen to the media. Listen to your own mind and to the people who actually know Einstein and have the ability to tell you if he's crazy. 7/10

The things that I loved about this movie were the cinematography and the character development. However, the story felt too much like a made up story and in the end it just didn't make sense. I guess I am spoiled. This was not a bad movie. I just didn't think it was as good as it could have been.

This movie is a great look at the life of a man who tried to communicate with other planets. It is a good time to see how modern science is being applied in the fields of astronomy, space, and biology. The movie is very realistic and very easy to watch. I think the filmmakers did a very good job with their budget and their story was very interesting. It's very refreshing to see the working of a dedicated team of scientists and mathematicians. I would love to see more of their work.

It's a fun film, with some really nice visuals, and interesting people. And the director was pretty good. It's an unusual film, and I can see why it's been criticized, but I think it's good. If you can suspend your disbelief a bit, and look past the mistakes, it's a pretty fun movie. It's got its moments, but there's also some really poor scenes. If you're looking for a movie that's "just" a documentary, and you like to be told a story, you may want to look elsewhere. It's not a bad film, but it's not a great one either.

In his latest film, "The Amazing Spider-Man", Marc Webb again proves that he's an expert at making a Spider-Man movie, albeit one that's pretty much a clone of the last movie. There's the same style of making the Spider-Man movies, the same dialogue, the same special effects, the same cast, and just about the same tone. Webb is probably the most experienced of the current cast and they have some great chemistry. There's a real sense of community in this film and the interactions between the characters feel very genuine. I enjoyed this film and I really wanted to see what the director would do next, but I can't wait until he completes his sequel.

A movie that's really just about a man's journey across the country from the end of World War II, to the end of the Korean War. This is not a film about "Americans" or "America". It is a movie about the human condition and how it changes over time. This film focuses on the man named Harold Simmons. He is a man who lived his life as a young man, until he was sent to prison in the mid-60's. He is the only surviving member of his platoon from the end of World War II. He then lives his life as a young man, and becomes a businessman, married to a wonderful woman named Rebecca. He then gets involved in his work, and is told that he's going to be fired, and that he needs to get out of prison. He meets two different men, one in prison, one in the service, and the third man, who is an engineer, who also becomes a businessman, and he goes on to live his life. The two prisoners from the war are portrayed by Matt Damon and Hugh Jackman, and they are two young men who were sent to prison, and are looking for something in life. The movie focuses more on the man in the middle of the two guys, who is now trying to get his life back on track, and his thoughts on life, and why he doesn't want to go back to prison. This movie is very moving, and it is very well done. This is not a film for everyone, but it is worth seeing.

It's pretty well made. Nothing to blow your mind, nothing to leave you in awe. Nothing to win over the audience. Nothing to bring a tear to your eye. The one thing it does do is make you think, which is not a bad thing. It doesn't have a clear focus, but it does a good job of telling a story about science and the scientists who work on it. The amount of information that goes into each frame is impressive. It's not as detailed as you'd expect from a science documentary, but there is a lot of data and explanations that are not easy to miss. There are some really smart and entertaining segments as well, like the one on the future of science and technology, and the one on the connection between science and religion. There is a lot of discussion on whether science is a religion. The discussion is lively and at times heated. One of the things that really caught my attention is the mention of pseudoscience. I was expecting something like "Goddess, the theory of evolution, or the theory of evolution by random mutation." But it's not. The science is clear and well-covered. There is no need to be accused of "reading between the lines." It's well-documented in the film. The conversation about the scientists' personal lives and lives as scientists is also very interesting. There is one scene that I really liked, in which they discuss the impact of the theories of Einstein on their lives. It is very interesting and eye-opening to see how much science has changed over the years. I would highly recommend this film to people who are interested in science and what it can do for people.

As you can imagine, this documentary, which follows the life of mathematician and Nobel Prize winner Erwin Schrödinger, has been shot on the greenest of all possible worlds: a run-down cinema, with the lighting, the sound, the panning, the quiet of the night and the breeze. The effect is that of a camera that has never been fired, but has just been placed somewhere where it can't go. The film's protagonist is Erwin Schrödinger, the man who, along with fellow mathematician Niels Bohr, led the fight against the atomic bomb in the early 1950s. But the film, which has been made by Schrödinger's son, was just the beginning of a life filled with constant struggle, and Schrödinger has become the poster child for all that is to be fought against. But there are other members of the family, and there are also different shades of the same man. We learn how Schrödinger became a refugee from Germany, how he began to be chased by his own government, and how he became a recluse in a huge apartment building that was almost completely full of people, and had no electricity. The film, as the title would suggest, is a fascinating look at the life of the man, his families and his work. This is a great documentary that is well worth watching. It's almost a perfect 10/10.

A very slow paced documentary that tells the story of "the man who invented the world's most successful computer programming language." The story is told in a very deliberate and slow paced way, which lends itself to a film that feels more like an oral history than a documentary. It is fascinating to watch the relationship between Erwin and Lasker unfold through interviews and personal memories of the man. The film has a very interesting and enjoyable feeling to it, and it manages to be a pretty intriguing and thought provoking documentary. The one criticism that I have of the film is that the director does not have a clear and concise way of telling the story. The idea of "the man who invented the world's most successful computer programming language" is something that the film does a good job of capturing the atmosphere of, but the film does not have a strong enough idea of how the language was invented, or what really happened to the man Erwin Da Costa. Still, it is a very well-made documentary and is a good film to watch if you are a fan of Erwin Da Costa or just want to see his life in film. 7/10

I was fortunate enough to see this movie on the Toronto International Film Festival where I live. I was blown away by the beauty of the film and the simple fact that an animated film can be so moving. My only complaint is that the voice overs were overdubbed and therefore a bit hard to understand. If you can't make out the words I really recommend you look up the animated version of "Dear Santa" which is much easier to understand. The film is well worth the price of admission, not only for the beautiful cinematography but also for the messages of the movie. We all have families, friends and lovers who are people we can relate to and often it's the people we don't know that we can most relate to. I think that this movie is about a family, a family that loves the same things as the family in the movie and that knows that there is a place in the world that is different from us. It's about the idea of hope and the idea that our family can make a difference.

The original documentary was very well made, and it set a very good tone, I'm very glad they have decided to re-make this with a wider scope and a more comprehensive set of questions. In addition, I feel that a lot of this movie did not need to be shown in a school classroom, it was really about the critical importance of a modern education system and how it affects every single individual in the world. Not only did it touch on how important education is in general, but also how important it is in the specific context of what was being discussed. I think the kids need to see how important education is and that it is absolutely necessary. I think it is an excellent tool for education to start with and how can we take it further and increase the standard of education in this generation. This documentary also shows how many different sub-teaching tasks are involved in educating children in this way. It really does get to the point of what needs to be done, and how education is affecting the world around us. This documentary really helped me understand how much I cared about education and how important it was. I highly recommend this documentary to everyone who is interested in education.
