This is an outstanding film, both touching and striking. Bennick and Shen take on difficult materials in this documentary and make it work outstandingly well. The filming is lovely, in contrast to much of the contents, and this is certainly one documentary you will never forget.

5.0 out of 5 stars This movie sheds light on WHY people may like or hate the movie itself AND SO MUCH MORE ! ! March 4 2014
By Peter D Giatrakis - Published on

The information this movie gives MAY be considered "narrow" or "garbage" but even so this movie attempts to do what no documentary I've ever seen attempts to do. That is to ( Show us WHY we do the things we do) It shows us WHY we may have a hostility toward this movie itself. And "narrow" ??? The movie uses an array of disciplines like anthropology, psychology, history, philosophy and theology to make sense of the strange things we as people tend to do. The viewer that believes the glass is half empty or full may need to pull back and listen to the movie itself in order to realize that you may have just learned WHY you think it one or the OTHER. Instead of searching for reasons to disagree with the movie how about entertaining the ideas given as possible truth and reasons for why people do what they do. This movie is nothing less then gold, gold for me and hopefully others that can really see how the knowledge in this movie could bring us all closer much closer to a vastly better world of peace, harmony and fruitful symbiosis with the world. My sincere hope is that people truly embrace the real ramifications of the information/ideas within this movie and learn to forgive others and avoid future atrocities. It is my deepest hope.

4.0 out of 5 stars "Everything Has Been Figured Out Except How To Live" ~ The Eventuality Of Death Dec 22 2006
By Brian E. Erland - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
`Flight From Death - The Quest for Immortality' (`03) is a thought provoking journey into the most basic of all mans' fears, the fear of impending death. Using Ernst Becker's classic work `The Denial of Death' as a springboard, this documentary explores the ongoing research by a group of cultural anthropologist and their formulation of what they call, "Terror Management Theory."

Overall I found this documentary to be intelligent, informative and at times emotional. Its one weakness in my estimation is its brief meandering into international politics and its convert sermonizing on the evil within. I sincerely doubt that our reaction to the events of 9/11 were based on our quest for immortality. Otherwise a worthwhile watch about a subject that we all must one day come to grips with.

2.0 out of 5 stars Didn't appeal to me... Sept. 15 2016
By M. Stone - Published on

I watched this on a recommendation from a colleague, but I'm sorry to say the show did not appeal to me.

It offers some leftist academics with their usual agenda, who don't know how to speak without using profane language (always a tell-tale sign of a liberal, as they don't respect the views or values of others), a two second shot of a priest saying that many wars have been based on religion to help bolster their claims and laboratory experiments, and then plenty of stock footage of wars, violence being committed by who knows who for unknown reasons, probably nothing related to anything they're talking about, but otherwise helps make the viewer feel bad about themselves for fearing death, other cultures, and most everything else.

If you want the usual drivel from liberal academics that reinforce your view that religion causes wars, that introverted people and others with higher levels of anxiety must cling to ancient superstitions and conservative politics to maintain their self esteem in the world, and that only higher-minded educated types in the western world can shine a light to our dark ages, well then this is the show for you.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not Perfect, but better than nothing June 21 2007
By Vance - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Having been a proponent of Ernest Becker's theories articulated in The Denial of Death since its publication in 1973, and of terror management theory, I came watch the movie with great expectation considering the past reviews. While acceptable as a purely introductory movie, it did not add much to my understanding of the subject of death's impact on human motivation and behavior. Still, by confirming the viability of Becker's ideas, my immortality project was enhanced. And that is always good!
