    The film is probably of interest only to those viewers who, like Gondry himself apparently, already have an obsession with Chomsky.

    4/5★ Is the Man Who Is Tall Happy?
    Noam Chomsky is a man of ideas, and Michel Gondry is a man of images. Combine the two, and with a little luck something cohesive and thought provoking will happen. ITMWITH? skates the line of confusion, and Gondry's thick accent doesn't help matters, but I was left with new points of view and the feeling that Gondry is the Wes Anderson of documentary filmmaking.

    Verdict: Not mindless entertainment.
