Boredom

What is boredom and where does it come from? Can one really be “bored to death’? And how can you fight it? Director Albert Nerenberg (Laughology, Stupidity) continues investigating personality characteristics that everyone addresses every day in this high-quality documentary. This film offers great perspectives and approaches to boredom, taking a fairly satirical tone while considering other social factors, education, and technology usage. The bonus feature almost equals the film’s running time and includes two quick featurettes and the 48-minue “A Revolutionary Accelerated Unboring Version for the Easily Bored. Really!” This is a  very entertaining and solidly recommended documentary.
