I Am December 7, 2014Posted by nrhatch in Books & Movies, Happiness, Life Balance.
Tom Shadyak, director of Ace Ventura, Bruce Almighty, Evan Almighty, Liar Liar, Patch Adams, and other films sustained a broken arm and a concussion in a biking accident in 2007.
Despondent over the side effects of the concussion, he thought about death and, from there, began to ask what he wanted to share with the world before he died.
From those questions, he chose his next project.
In I AM, Shadyac asks some of today’s most profound thinkers, two questions:
* What’s wrong with our world?
* What can we do about it?
Several interviews touched upon the view that excess consumption and consumerism is a form of mental illness resulting from social conditioning which values competition more than cooperation.
In order to simplify his life, Tom sold his 17,000 square foot mansion and moved to a mobile home park in Malibu.
He rides a bike to work.
Aah . . . that’s better!
