Freakonomics (2010)

Narrated by: Steven D. Levitt and Stephen J. Dubner

Directed by: Alex Gibey & Heidi Ewing

PG-13. 86 mins.

In this film version of the bestselling novel focusing on incentive-based thinking, the authors attempt to examine human behaviour in provocative and often humorous scenarios. In a series of six short films with very different directors, there are certainly some shorts that surpass the others in depth and style. The film is extremely disjointed and all this bite-sized food for thought leaves the viewer hungry for a truly satisfying experience. Freakonomics isn’t nearly as conclusive or interesting as it pretends to be – * *
