A documentary movie that revolves around Bill Nye, a famous television man who tries to stop the spread of the anti scientific thinking around the world. He admires his late professor, Carl Sagan, an astronomer who dreamt of launching a space craft working by the solar energy. Bill decides to complete what his professor begins.
The central question of how does one become a "scientific statesman" in our current media environment, which is entertainment-driven and filled with misinformation and even disdain for science, is an intriguing one.
Yes, it's deeply pleasurable to watch Nye school conservative blowhards who make their living promoting lies, but I wanted Alvarado and Sussberg to explore their subject as thoroughly as he explores the world around him.
Channeling Nye's own gift for making complex ideas simple and clear, the filmmakers edit together these various aspects of Nye's life with deceptive ease, drawing on interviews and archival material and following him throughout his hectic schedule.
