| Informercial for Werner, but interesting
An obsequious puff piece on Werner Erhard, the guru of the est training. They bring in Rick Ross for a few seconds to criticize the cult-like nature of some of his followers, and a SF Chronicle journalist who admits that they were fawning of the self-improvement groups.

They save the bulk of the film for former est graduates who have doctorates to call Werner a "genius" and a world-changer.

The best parts of the film involve former est trainer Randy McNamara who tells great stories. Also it is eye-opening to see how the Scientologists and media went after Erhard with false charges.

How Werner dealt with such a blow to his reputation and career is inspiring, in spite of the puff-piece feeling of the movie. I left with a real sense of admiration for Mr. Erhard
