Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"No offense to Pipkin and his real concerns, but a tougher questioner might have shed more light and heat."
‑ Ty Burr, Boston Globe
"It is difficult to sustain an audience's interest with talking heads, and a few of the Nobel Laureates have trouble explaining concepts in terms that are easy to digest during a documentary."
‑ Jette Kernion, Cinematical
"It's about 40 IQ points dumber than the typical public television broadcast."
‑ Stephen Hunter, Washington Post
"If you like to have your brain (and your heart) engaged when you watch films, this is a documentary you don't want to miss and you don't have to be a Nobel Prize winner to see the value of it."
‑ Cherryl Dawson and Leigh Ann Palone,
"An amiably sincere and politely thought-provoking docu in which the peripatetic writer-director plays genial talk-show host to various Nobel Prize winners."
‑ Joe Leydon, Variety
"My advice would be to find a copy of this fantastic documentary, settle down for an 80-minute piece of enlightenment, and then maybe use its lessons to help make the world a better place."
‑ Scott Weinberg,
