Freakonomics

Rated PG-13 86 minutes 2010

Four documentary filmmakers – Alex Gibney, Morgan Spurlock, Eugene Jarecki, and the team of Heidi Ewing and Rachel Grady – wing a quartet of mini-docs based around Steven Levitt and Stephen Dubner’s book of the same name. And it’s mild stuff indeed, more like an especially lightweight edition of 60 Minutes than a hard-hitting exposé of cultural ills. Pick of the litter is Spurlock and writer Jeremy Chilnick’s essay on the social indicators in people’s given names. Twin morals: “Keep asking questions,” and “Incentives matter.” Right-o. (93 min.)
