Documentary Review | Examined Life: Philosophy is in the Streets

Examined Life: Philosophy is in the Streets is an incredibly interesting philosophical project. Astra Taylor, the films director and videographer, interviews different philosophers who continue to go about their daily lives. As they walk the streets of New York and San Francisco, many different controversial ideas are laid in front of us. Issues ranging from world hunger, to global warming, the U.S.A., these philosophers delve deep into the systematic problems with the world today, and what possible consequences these issues could have.

I really enjoyed this documentary because of how informative it was. It addressed complicated issues in a manner that just got to the point and explained them how they really are. The philosophers spoke in a way that anyone could understand the issues. The documentary was well put together and was edited in a way that was entertaining for any viewer. I would recommend this documentary to anyone who is interested in philosophy.
