A film has been made about Ray Kurzweil and his ideas, with superhuman nomenclature, the "Transcendant Man". The film was screened at the Tribeca festival.

The film was designed to showcase the ideas in a sympathetic but not uncritical light:

Ptolemy says the title of the documentary, “Transcendent Man” is a play on words — it is meant to describe the human-machine constructs Kurzweil envisions, as well as his efforts to live out his own views. For instance, Kurzweil takes more than 100 nutritional supplements each day, as he hopes to live long enough to benefit from artificial life extension technologies.
Kurzweil, who travels around the world, is an accomplished lecturer and his audiences are largely self-selecting enthusiasts.
The film is available on torrent.
