  • 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.

    Ynever seen a documentary quite like this one, and aren't likely to again.
  3. Meanders, dawdles, doubles back on itself but finally gets us somewhere fascinating and worthwhile.
  4. As an exploration of a man who really did take the road less traveled, the film is fascinating.

    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.
