Atlas Shrugged: Who is John Galt? Movie Premieres Friday; See Clips in New Documentary


The third and final installment in the film adaptation of Ayn Rand's staggering (and staggeringly successful, even 57 years later) novel Atlas Shrugged, a brutal and vivid dramatization of the horrific places the logic of statism and collectivism lead, premieres nationally on Friday.

The makers of the film have issued an interesting 29 minute documentary, called Atlas Shrugged: Now, Non-Fiction, containing clips from the forthcoming film Atlas Shrugged: Who is John Galt?

Watch it here, starring, among others, Ron Paul:

In 2009 I wrote for Reason on the theme of the documentary, the inescapable presence of Rand's ideas in the real world today.
