Freakonomics, the hit sensation book by Steven D. Levitt and Stephen J. Dubner, has spawned one of the most interesting and compelling documentaries to come out the year which is Freakonomics: The Movie (read my review). The film is broken down into four sections based on chapters in the book, with interludes directed by Seth Gordon. I was fortunate to sit down with two of the six principle filmmaker collaborators for the film, Morgan Spurlock who directed the chapter A Roshanda by Any Other Name and Eugene Jarecki who directed the chapter It’s (Not Always) A Wonderful Life.
