“There has not been such a convincing, genuine, singular voice in our language since D. H. Lawrence. Paul Goodman’s voice touched everything he wrote about with intensity, interest, and his own terribly appealing sureness and awkwardness.”—Susan Sontag

“His impact is all around us.”—Noam Chomsky

Poet, pacifist, anarchist, and openly bisexual (as early as the closeted 1940s), Paul Goodman was a ubiquitous public intellectual in the 1960s. Drawing on a treasure trove of archival material, including Goodman’s poetry (read by Garrison Keillor and Edmund White), interviews with family members, and televised interviews with the likes of William F. Buckley, Paul Goodman Changed My Life is a rich portrait of an intellectual heavyweight whose ideas are long overdue for rediscovery. (89 mins., video)
