"I AM is a sure-fire conversation starter. An emotional thought fest that inspires hope for an evolutionary shift. I Am and its director are a welcomed newcomer to the documentary scene. The film offers a hopeful antidote to disconnection and despair. It is a wake-up call to the forces of good within each of us to write a new story for the world."
-Dan Siegel, The Huffington Post
"A positive, expansive experience."
-John Hartl, The Seattle Times
"Upbeat and enjoyable."
-Jeffrey M. Anderson, San Francisco Examiner
"A passionate film. It's what Shadyac was saying all along in his comedies, but this time he's saying it with feeling."
-Tad Friend, The New Yorker
"The film is crammed with intriguing ideas but Shadyac earns is keep as a filmmaker. He illustrates the serious talk with provocative images emphasizing our sense of connectedness."
-Patrick Goldstein, The Los Angeles Times
"The transformational movement has a great friend in Tom Shadyac. He delivers esoteric knowledge to a popular audience, expressing the intersection of ancient wisdom and modern consciousness in a way both entertaining and enlightening. I AM is a spark of light and a work of love."
"Terrific. A highly principled film that tackles esoteric content in a grounded and (of course) humorous way. We sincerely encourage our readers to check out I AM."
-Rob Sidon, Common Ground
"A positive and hopeful vision of the real essence of human nature. Has the depth and integrity you would expect of a seeker of truth. Shadyac inspires us by how he has changed his own life, and is happier for it. I can't think of a more positive film to serve as an antidote to the fears generated by the economy, war, politics and the approach of 2012. There is hope, and we are it."
