Matthew Cobb called my attention to a tw**t by Richard Dawkins:
And, sure enough, there’s a one hour and 22 minute documentary about Hitchens that I’d somehow missed. Perhaps readers have seen it before, as it’s been posted for 11 months. I’ve now watched it, and it is indeed very good. Take some time, put it on full screen, and, if you will, pour a glass of Mr. Walker’s amber restorative.
Although it starts slow, it picks up quickly, and parts of it are ineffably moving, like Hitchens’s remembrances of his mother. Most readers will take issue with his position on the Iraq war, but listen to him nevertheless. You don’t want to listen only to people with whom you agree, do you? Part Five, on free speech, is particularly stirring, and segues into the segment on religion. You will, if you’re sentient, be in tears for the last ten minutes.
Here it is:
The film was made by Kristoffer Hellesmark, and you can get more information here.
Although Hitch is gone, and if, like me, you were a fan, this will make you sad. The great voice is stilled forever. But even more, it will inspire you to keep up the good fight.
