Description The ideas that dominate the tech industry and our day to day lives were born at a secretive Silicon Valley start-up called 'General Magic', which spun out of Apple in 1990 to create the first handheld personal communicator (or "smartphone"). The film combines rare archival footage with powerful honesty from the "Magicians" today, reflecting on the most influential Silicon Valley Company no one has ever heard of. Featuring legendary members of the original Macintosh team, along with the creators of the iPod, iPhone, Android and eBay.

This is a very deep and philosophical documentary, well worth the time and money to watch. I have to say that the majority of the comments I have seen on this are very negative, the reason I read these comments is because it is so easy to understand the point the director is trying to make. I think it is quite obvious that most people see the film as an attack on the church, it is in fact a very positive view of the church. However, I think the most interesting thing is the fact that people tend to see the documentary as a really big attack on Christianity. The director makes a clear point that Christianity is not something to be attacked. It is something that is very unique in that it has been the target of countless cultures and religions and therefore it has survived the test of time, the fact that the majority of the people who are not Christians do not really understand it, they see it as a religion that can only be understood by people that are Christian and that makes Christianity a bad religion, but that is a very simplistic way of thinking. It is also a bit arrogant to say that Christianity is a religion that was never attacked. I think the real truth is that the church has been attacked many times, and the Christians have always responded by defending their beliefs, but I think the movie makes this point in a much more personal and powerful way, and the movie is very entertaining, it is an amazing journey. I highly recommend this film, and I think you should see it.

I am a huge fan of Richard Dawkins. He is a brilliant man and a fantastic scientist. I have read a number of his books. I know him well, and I am very grateful that I am able to share my opinions and observations with those who care about the world. I'm so grateful to have been able to meet with Richard, and share my opinions and observations. I have learned so much from him. I was especially impressed with how he has taught me that there are different kinds of science, and that he is in fact the father of modern science. I also learned that, even though he may be a genius, there is a difference between science and religion. I was also very impressed with his "doctrine of God" and his approach to religion. I have to say that his ideas are not at all the same as mine, which are quite different. But that's my opinion. The movie was very well made. The documentary style of the documentary is done very well, and it allows the viewer to share in Richard's ideas. The movie is well structured. It has a very interesting plot, and there are a number of interesting ideas that are not shown in the documentary style, and which are instead shown in the movie. Richard has such an inspiring story. I have read Richard's books, and he is an amazing man. He is a scientist, a philosopher, a person who has a remarkable capacity for giving meaning to life. I hope that we will be able to learn from him. I have read the book "The Magic of Reality". It is very inspiring. I wish we could all learn from Richard Dawkins, and this movie is very much an example of that. Thank you, Richard.

This is a really important documentary. This movie was absolutely breathtaking. I thought it was going to be a waste of time. I expected the narration to be a non-existent cliche, like in the last five years we've had, for example, the "Oscar" of our time, for the remake of "The Matrix". But this movie changed my life. I mean, for a change, I can now see the documentary from the perspective of the participants, instead of the director of the film. In fact, all the actors and the director did a really amazing job. For example, they made me realize that this is an art, not a science. They have shown us that this is an art, not a science. It's important to show this aspect of our life and how it changes us, but not in a scientific way. We are all, like the actors and director, are human beings. So it's important to be open to new things and not to judge it on its scientific or mathematical side. We are all artists and, like the actors and director, we all need to evolve to a new level, to get past the "scientific illusion". The people who made this documentary were amazingly inspired by the director's energy and energy of his life. I also appreciated that they kept the main idea of the film, which is to say, we all have the power to change our lives, and that, in fact, that power is within us, it is within us, but we all need to make it usefully. I am a scientist, I am a psychologist, I am a social worker. But, to me, this film is like a new scientific, not a documentary. It's not a documentary, it's a great work of art.
