Very interesting concept and some wise words spoken. There seems to be an editing mishap in that one guy is shown before another who is younger than him. Also would have liked if there were no gaps. 100 people altogether would have made a sharper impact.
By merely asking grandiose abstract questions and presenting similarly limited answers, both of which never realize themselves in the film itself, life seems nihilistic. One of my first depressing existential realizations, at the onset of adolescence, something no one had even mentioned to me, was that people are pressured to pick one career, reproduce, and pass the process on to the next generation.
