What I’m Watching Now


Another in an occasional series. And another that I watched some time ago. Director Stephen Finnigan makes effective use of fascinating video and still photos for Hawking. Unlike The Theory of Everything, this  documentary lets Stephen Hawking tell his own story. The filmmakers went to considerable effort and expense to re-create 1950s and 1960s England. They excelled. And they kept the geeky science stuff to a fascinating minimum.

In this case a slanted view is understandable. Like the Hendrix doc, though, Hawking glosses over how difficult this genius was, and not just because of his illness.
