About the Movie
THE LIFE AND TIMES OF PAUL THE PSYCHIC OCTOPUS tells the official and exclusive rags-to-riches story of the world’s most beloved and scorned cephalopod, whose perfect divination rate during the 2010 Soccer World Cup made him an instant international superstar and pop culture icon. 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 fascinated us, made us dream, and impacted popular culture. THE LIFE AND TIMES OF PAUL THE PSYCHIC OCTOPUS 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.
Viva el pulpo Paul!
This movie is an interesting documentary not only about Paul the Octopus, but an interesting insight about the faith we humans place in animals to divine the future. Which in turn takes the burden off of our own shoulders. During the next world cup, it will be interesting to see what animal will be our next prognosticator. A fun movie to watch. Paul’s agent is hilarious.
