Critic Reviews for A Brief History of Time
A Brief History of Time is an elegant, inspirational and mysterious movie. Morris turns abstract ideas into haunting images, and keeps them spinning in the air with the finesse, and playfulness, of a master juggler.
Few of us can judge Hawking's intellect, but any of us can sense that fire, that insistence of self on self.
I'm pleased I saw the film, such as it is, but it doesn't do justice to Hawking's genius or to Morris' own genius, and I was left with the question of whether even Morris had ever finished the book.
A Brief History delivers a clear, often fascinating precis on the investigations and beliefs of one of the world's leading scientific theorists. Yet Morris is too shrewd a documentarian to miss the drama of Hawking's life.
Morris. Hawking. Two of my favorite artists together. It couldn't miss, and it didn't.
Audience Reviews for A Brief History of Time
As conventional as a routine documentary made for television, it feels not only superficial in the way it covers Hawking's life and theories (sometimes even lacking in clarity) but also irritating as it doesn't let us know who the interviewees are (there are no captions whatsoever).
Plays with your head - in a good way.
It has the potential to be a snoozefest but it is well shot and therefore both the film and subject keep your interest. Everyone should have the experience of seeing what spending time with Mr. Hawking is really like.
