An acclaimed look at the fascinating world of Stephen Hawking, the brilliant ALS-stricken physicist and author whose work has revolutionized science. Directed by Errol Morris, the film juxtaposes Hawking's own life story with inventive illustrations of his writings and theories, examining such topics as the universe's origin, the nature of time, and which came first, the chicken or the egg. Music by Philip Glass. 84 min. Widescreen (Enhanced); Soundtrack: English DTS HD 5.1 Master Audio; Subtitles: English (SDH); interviews. Two-disc set.
Three-disc set includes "Mondo Cane," "Mondo Cane 2," and "Women Of The World" (1963).
"Mondo" pioneers Gualtiero Jacopetti and Franco Prosperi are honored (though many would object to that term) with the opportunity to present their own insights about their wildly controversial and shockingly graphic documentaries, in "The Godfathers Of Mondo" (2003). How do they explain themselves...and their films? Only one way to find out: Watch, if you dare! Three-disc set also includes "Africa Blood And Guts" and "Goodbye Uncle Tom." 5 2/3 hrs. total. Widescreen (Enhanced); Soundtrack: English and Italian Dolby Digital mono; Subtitles: English. In English and Italian with English subtitles.
