Richard Rifkind is chairman Emeritus at the Sloan-Kettering Institute for Cancer Research and Carole Rifkind an author and educator, together their documentary entitled Naturally Obsessed: The making of a Scientist is a peek into the lifestyle of people who toil away because of their interest to know things and just for the sheer joy of understanding.
This documentary profiles three graduate students in the laboratory of Dr. Larry Shapiro and what happens to them (their thoughts and life changes as they toil away struggling to get experiments to work) as they pursue their PhD. If you ever wanted to know what it is like to be in graduate school, this is pretty much it, even if you don't work on protein crystallography. And if you have been through graduate school, this will resonate with you and you will thoroughly enjoy the film.
I highly recommend it!!
