You Never Loved the Universe this much...,
This review is from: Brief History of Time [VHS] (VHS Tape)
"A Brief History of Time" is not just a fascinating look at both the biography of physicist Steven Hawking and at the development of his theories, but it is an example of British documentary film-making at its finest. The film cuts back and forth between the slow and deadly development of Steven's illness, and the magical universe that he has made more understandable than we ever thought possible. The deep humanity of the film, and the way it binds together Steven's theories of physics with the very essence of who he is, makes it both an academic and emotional experience. Once you've seen this movie, you'll never look at science or scientists in quite the same way again.
