What started as a New York Times article in 2003 became one of the best-selling books of the last decade and is now one of the most compelling films of the year. Freakonomics, by economist Steven D. Levitt and author Stephen J. Dubner, examines human behavior through the lens of statistics and incentives, rather than morals and ethics, illuminating surprising and controversial conclusions. Now a team of powerhouse directors comes together to tackle this provocative material in a singular cinematic experience. Alex Gibney ('Taxi to the Dark Side') delivers a visually arresting look at the crumbling facade of Sumo wrestling and exposes searing and violent truths about this ancient and revered sport. Morgan Spurlock ('#Super Size Me') offers up a buoyant and revealing angle on the repercussions of baby names. Rachel Grady and Heidi Ewing ('#Jesus Camp) balance levity and candor with their eye-opening profile of underachieving kids incentivized to learn with cold hard cash. Finally, Eugene Jarecki, who brought us the unforgettably powerful '#Why We Fight', investigates an unsettling theory to explain why crime rates dramatically dropped in the early '90s. Seth Gordon ('#The King of Kong') weaves the pieces together with brisk interludes, providing context and commentary from the authors.'Freakonomics' exposes the hidden side of everything, debunking conventional wisdom, and revealing what answers may come if one just asks the right questions.
