"It is a film about one man’s struggle to find a meaningful way to live in a world on the verge of global catastrophe. We see Ken struggle with the question of whether he is mentally ill or whether the world has gone mad. We see him struggle with loneliness and his discovery of a community. For me, Grayzel’s portrayal of this struggle is what made “The Reluctant Radical” so compelling...There were lighthearted funny moments, poignant sad moments, exuberant triumphant moments, and tragic despairing moments. Through it all, I felt Ken’s internal struggle with how to act in the face of seemingly insurmountable indifference. Even if I didn’t already acutely feel the same way, I would have loved this film, for its portrayal of one man’s attempt to live moral life...no matter the cost."
