A true Hollywood insider with films like Ace Ventura: Pet Detective, Liar, Liar, and Bruce Almighty (among others) on his directorial resume, Tom Shadyac found his life profoundly altered after a bicycle accident left him with post-concussion syndrome. A little understood malady, PCS frequently leads to long bouts of depression. It was no different with Shadyac, who found himself withdrawing from his glitzy life and questioning the meaning of his material success.

The documentary I Am is the result of Shadyac’s re-shuffling of priorities. It is a fascinating, funny and deeply felt spiritual journey examining alternative ways of life that are at once grounded in the Utopian anti-materialist ideas of the 1960s and bolstered by the growing gray area where science and spirituality intersect. Controversial, maybe, but consistently interesting and with its heart in the right place, I Am is sure to generate a lot of post-screening discussion. And, short of changing the world for the better (which Shadyac is definitely trying to do), what more can one ask of a documentary?
