Walker Films Response

I very much liked the last two films for their content. In "2+2" I found the biography of Dr. Nash very interesting and his game theory. I had never heard of the game theory before, but it is very fascinating to me. In the Critical path I enjoyed learning about Bucky. Having taken a number of engineering courses already, I have heard of the buckyball already and am somewhat familiar with it's properties. I really enjoyed learning about the life of the man who inspired it's name. I liked "Breakaway" the most of all the films purely for it's artistic qualities. I found "Bruce Conner: A movie" to be to erratic to be fully appreciated in one viewing, but I thought he portrayed the harmony, and many times lack thereof, between man and technology.
