This 1983 documentary explores the life and work of popular American writer Kurt Vonnegut, perhaps best-known for penning such classics as Slaughterhouse Five and Breakfast of Champions. Using interview footage mixed with fictional segments of Vonnegut's alter-ego Kilgore Trout, "So it Goes" doubles as an exploration of the author's philosophy, which mixed low-brow genre conventions, and humor with a fierce humanist streak. As Vonnegut puts it, he viewed the earth like a martian, and through this unique perspective, his books skewered the power structures underpinning post-war America in a way that was both funny and oddly poignant.
