Movie Info

Is it possible to live forever? In this documentary, filmmaker Robert Kane Pappas explores the possibility of staving off old age and, as a result, the onset of disease. Some scientists claim the genes that control aging can be altered to give us more time on Earth - quality time in which we could be both happy and healthy. But what would be the moral implications of such experiments, and who would benefit from these potential medical breakthroughs? Just because we could prevent aging, does that mean we should? Dr. Cynthia Kenyon and Dr. Thomas Kirkwood weigh in with their answers to these questions, and speculate on the many social ramifications on living in a world of perpetual youth.


Critic Reviews for To Age Or Not To Age

All Critics (3) | Top Critics (2)

It is not that you disbelieve their claims; they could very well be valid. It is that they are presented so clumsily and without any outside analysis that the movie plays like a poorly produced infomercial.

Too bad Pappas limits any critical perspective on this project to brief, superficial discussions with a handful of wealthy "artists" at their Hamptons homes...

July 13, 2010

The innocuous title says it all about this documentary which shoots itself in the foot, constantly swerving from fascinating scientific discourse to inane cocktail-party chatter.
