Paul Goodman Changed My Life
($29.99 DVD, Zeitgeist)

One of the mid-20th century’s most outspoken and prolific queer Jewish intellectuals was Paul Goodman, co-creator of gestalt therapy. This activist, essayist, pacifist, poet and pundit made J. Edgar Hoover’s  shit list in the 1950s and ’60s  for being a subversive influence on America. (Goodman was such a part of the zeitgeist he even had a cameo in Annie Hall.)  Today, he is considered by some “the great unrecognized genius of our time,” somthing that  director Jonathan Lee’s documentary–with its deliciously retro Mad Men vibe—will hopefully help change.
