    Being a fan of Zinn for quite some time, I found this movie to be a great way to get to know the man behind the books and legends. It's a wonderful film that not only shows his life, but his actions too. A great argument for leftist politics.

    All in all, a superb introduction to Zinn, his philosophy, and his deeds. It does tend to drag, though.

    The ideas are generous and inclusive rather than divisive: Zinn wants history to be seen and to be experienced from every possible perspective.
  2. This video profile by Deb Ellis and Denis Mueller allows his significance to register and his charisma to shine despite a pedestrian approach that's especially awkward in its use of archival footage.

    As engaging and stimulating as the man himself.
