  • Summary: Tells the amazing story of 78-year old Tobias Schneebaum, one of the most charming, enigmatic and perplexing men ever captured on screen. A seemingly mild-mannered elderly Jewish New Yorker, Tobias is actually one of the most fearless adventurers of our time. (Next Wave Films)

  1. The film underscores the paradox in this man's life: the split between the mild-mannered New Yorker and the fearless vagabond who joined an Arakmbut hunting raid.
  2. A remarkable film about a remarkable man who's lived the kind of life usually reserved for adventure novels and pulp fiction.
  3. For him (Schneebaum) it's a journey of stunning rediscovery. For us it's the discovery of a brave soul.
  4. Sometimes disturbing but consistently fascinating.
  5. Reviewed by: Ken Fox

    Fascinating, if slightly unfocused, film.
  6. An engaging and colorful but somewhat overbalanced documentary.
  7. 20
    There's little evidence to suggest Schneebaum was one of the great explorers of the 20th century, or even that he was particularly curious.
