Documentarian Jonathan Lee takes on the life and work of social activist and public intellectual Paul Goodman in Paul Goodman Changed My Life. Throughout his life, Goodman was a playwright, psychotherapist, poet, and educator, and his influence is still visible on fields such as education, psychology, urban planning, civil rights, and sexual politics. 

"In this heady documentary, TV footage of left-wing social critic Paul Goodman being interviewed by conservative host William F. Buckley Jr. in 1966 makes one realize how low public discourse in America has sunk since then." - Andrea Gronvall, Chicago Reader
