Movie Info

The amazing adventures of H.L. "Doc" Humes, the man who put the culture in counterculture. With Lord Buckley, the Hip Messiah; paper houses for the poor; Don Peyote, a lost Beat take on Cervantes; the CIA, FBI, marijuana, massage, utopia-and paranoia.

In the 1950s and early '60s, Doc co-founded The Paris Review, wrote two acclaimed novels, and was a gregarious fixture of the cultural scene in Paris, London and New York. Doc was a 1950s NYC intellectual, a 60s free speech militant, and a 70s visionary crazy genius. His story is the story of decades of cultural history, a poignant personal long-strange-trip, and a fount of ever-relevant ideas.

George Plimpton, Norman Mailer, William Styron, Peter Matthiessen, Paul Auster, Timothy Leary, Alan Cheuse, Jonas Mekas, and other luminaries, friends and family all appear in the film. --© Official Sitemore

Pieces together Doc's phenomenal, wayward life and pays him unsentimental tribute.

As Doc observes, most crazy people are repellent, but H.L. Humes was magnetic.

Fascinating, wryly distanced docu[mentary].

Harold L. 'Doc' Humes was an icon of the counter culture, even though in his prime he looked more like a CPA. But looks can be deceiving, as we discover in the lively and loving documentary Doc, directed by one of Humes' four daughters, Immy.

Immy Humes no doubt needed to make this movie, and the PR set (Mailer, Matthiessen, Plimpton) obviously enjoy the trip down memory lane, but while Doc makes for a fascinating subject, Doc feels intended less for us than for them.
