Life and Times of Paul the Psychic Octopus, The



Alexandre Philippe | USA, 2012 | 90 min.

West Coast Premiere!

The official story of the world’s most beloved and scorned cephalopod, whose remarkable string of eight correct “predictions” during the 2010 World Cup made him a superstar. Whether Paul is an honest-to-goodness 21st century oracle, or a tentacled sham, remains a hotly debated topic. What is certain though is that Paul’s unmatched string of correct predictions has affected us, made us dream, and impacted popular culture. This is a biopic of tentacular proportions–one that explores celebrity mania at its most outrageous, the science of probabilities, and the possibility of higher powers.
