I AM the movie

“I Am” is a documentary by American comedian, producer, director, and writer, Tom Shadyac (director of Ace Ventura: Pet Detective, Liar Liar, and Bruce Almighty). After a 2007 bike accident, Tom became obsessed with giving his wealth away. In this film he interviews top scientists, religious leaders, and philosophers including Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Noam Chomsky, and Howard Zinn. It is currently screening at film festivals and with special screenings at colleges.

  1. Noam Chomsky seems to be the man to interview if you want to stake a claim to be a left-wing intellectual; I wonder if he considered interviewing Margaret Thatcher about how, like the Good Samaritan, he couldn’t give away all this wealth if he hadn’t earned it in the first place?

  2. I live in Las Vegas (Summerlin)and your movie was supposed to showcase at the Regal Cinema the end of April but its not listed? I have an entire group that will join me. What’s the problem? Thanks, Francine

  3. I would like to see this move and can not seem to find any place in my area of northern New England, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Maine, or Vermont. When can we expect this documentary to be shown in this area? I am sure that after the O show had Mr. Shadyac’s interview the buss about the water cooler is going to be were to see it and when it will be in this area. Please let us know when and were in the New England area they will be showing.

  4. I too, am wanting to view this movie…I live in Los Altos in the Bay area and only see it in San Raphael and Berkeley…any chance of it coming to Palo Alto or San Jose soon?

    Eagerly awaiting,
    Cristen V

  5. I absolutely loved this documentary! It made me look at my life and what I could be doing, what is really important. I especially found meaningful the interview with the filmaker’s father, where he asks his dad why people don’t do more for others, why “people” don’t see the value in life beyond the material. His father obviously didn’t know either, but gave much of his time, energy and I presume, money, to St. Jude’s Hospital. It seems that there are those of us who see a need to care for our brothers and sisters and there are those still caught in grasping material wealth. Sometimes I know I tend to think it’s only “the rich” but the only one I can change is me. Simple and oh so difficult.

    It’s kind of neat that it came to little St.Johnsbury, Vermont before a lot of the big cities…
