""Pawel Kuczynski is one of the most interesting documentary/hybrid filmmakers in the world. (...) Kuczynski?s films remind me of those of Ross McElwee, famous for exploring his Southern heritage especially in ?Sherman?s March.? K. has two parents, philosophy professors in Poland so his cultural landscape is quite different from McElwee?s but equally intense. I love the mixing of a fictionalized tale of a man who truly takes one of the world?s greatest thinkers seriously and K?s endlessly questioning of professors of philosophy who also know Nietzsche?s writings very well. This version has a great interview with Prof. Karl-Otto Appel, a famous critic of Nietzsche of lived the distorted results in Nazi Germany. Of all the films I have seen on philosophy including ones by people like Godard and Syberberg, none packs more intense images about the meaning of philosophy into its 64 minutes than this film."
