    WOW...informative, entertaining and, most importantly, thought provoking. 

    Reminded me of "Fast, Cheap and Out of Control," a highly recommened 1997 documentary ($2.99 for 24 hour vieiwng on Amazon; it has been shown on PBS). This seems to be fast, cheap and totally in self-control. The documentary takes it's name from a 1989 paper by MIT robot scientist Rodney Brooks who is one of the four very interesting people the film centers in its exploration of unusual and passionate human endeavours.

    To top it off, the music finale sounded just like Alloy Orchestra, three amazing guys that do live accompaniment to silent films; notably Fritz Lang's Metropolis (another robot connection).
