The first serious documentary on boredom. Director Albert Nerenberg asks why the subject of boredom has been so religiously avoided and shows that boredom isn't what one think it is. The film's breakthrough research suggests boredom is likely a state of stress. It may also be killing people. Perhaps the powers that be would rather people not know that, especially if one is inside some kind of educational institution or dead end job.

I was surprisingly NOT bored whilst watching this movie. It gives a compelling insight into boredom, the human mind, etc...but it lacks in giving a resolution to that boredom - at least I think so.

I thought that the subject was very interesting. What I didn't particularly care for was the presentation. It almost had a tabloid like production to it. Would be nice to see a more academic iteration done by say Nova or National Geographic. But as there isn't really any other documentaries on the subject, you might as well watch this one.

What is the ultimate Boring Institute? They are all around us: schools and universities. Education in general it is concluded is one of the major sources of boredom. Although I believe learning is a two-way street in which students play a role, I do agree that education methods need to be dramatically re-thought.
