I occasionally run into Derrida: the Movie while searching for something or other. I wasn't sure what to think when I saw the pre-release web site, but I certainly didn't expect it to get heaps of glowing praise from reviewers in major publications.

In resisting any predictable, formulaic approach, they make Derrida a living, informal demonstration of "deconstruction" -- a system of thought which up to now has otherwise eluded cinematic capture. The result is not only thought provoking, but ground-breaking.
