Paul Goodman Changed My Life. Doc, NR, 89 min, in English
"Paul Goodman Changed My Life" pays tribute to
a man  poet, teacher, social critic, guru without
portfolio  whose name was once a household
word and whose books were talismans of intellectual
seriousness and social concern. His current obscurity
is something this documentary, directed by Jonathan
Lee and including eloquent testimony from friends,
family and admirers, is determined to overcome. -
A.O.Scott, New York Times

Paul Goodman was once so ubiquitous in the American zeitgeist that he merited a cameo in Woody Allen's Annie Hall. Author of legendary bestseller Growing Up Absurd (1960), Goodman was also a poet, 1940s out queer (and family man), pacifist, visionary, co-founder of Gestalt therapyand a moral compass for many in the burgeoning counterculture of the '60s. Paul Goodman Changed My Life immerses you in an era of high intellect (that heady, cocktail-glass juncture that Mad Men has so effectively exploited) when New York was peaking culturally and artistically; when ideas, and the people who propounded them, seemed to punch in at a higher weight class than they do now. Using a treasure trove of archival multimediaselections from Goodman's poetry (read by Garrison Keillor and Edmund White); quotes from Susan Sontag, Martin Luther King, Jr. and Noam Chomsky; plentiful footage of Goodman
himself; plus interviews with his family, peers and activistsdirector/producer Jonathan Lee and producer/editor Kimberly Reed (Prodigal Sons) have woven
together a rich portrait of an intellectual heavyweight whose ideas are long overdue for rediscovery.
