Freakonomics is one of my favorite books ever. The authors Steven Levitt and Stephen Dubner use economic models to explain things like why most drug dealers still live with their moms and what the similarities are between school teachers and sumo wrestlers. A must read.
And now its turned into a movie, and not by the least. The people making this movie are also the people behind Supersize Me, Enron: The Smartest Guys In The Room, Jesus Camp and The King Of Kong. Which all happen to be among my favorite documentaries ever. Lots of favorites! Let’s just hope it doesn’t suffer from the ‘The book was so much better syndrome’.
In theaters this fall.
