Douglas Hofstadter: Victim of the Brain

Another cool documentary, this time on Douglas Hofstadter, author of one of the coolest books ever written, Godel, Escher, Bach: An Eternal Golden Braid and the newer book, which is on my reading list, I Am a Strange Loop.

1988 docudrama about "the ideas of Douglas Hofstadter." It was created by Dutch director Piet Hoenderdos. Features interviews with Douglas Hofstadter and Dan Dennett. Dennett also stars as himself.
