Real Genius Directed by Martha Coolidge

Critics reviews

Martha Coolidge’s fastidious reproduction of the fraternal patriarchy of Caltech high-energy physics research in REAL GENIUS may as well be the pinnacle of naturalism. Usually (and understandably) thought of as a comedy, REAL GENIUS in retrospect is one of the most fully realized cinematic critiques of both the military sponsorship of the physical sciences and the nerd zeitgeist that provides its unreflexive labor pool.
