Movie Info

This documentary feature chronicles science fiction author Philip K. Dick, who was famous for creating tales that centered around questions of identity, often pertaining to the real versus unreal and human versus machine. In the film, several luminaries discuss Dick's impact on society and how it affected popular art, such as Robert Anton Wilson, author of the Illuminati trilogy, and Paul Williams, who profiled the author in a 1974 Rolling Stone article that was a catalyst for his elevation

Tells a lot more than it shows about its subject, looking more like an infomercial for Dick's legend than a true window into his art and influence.

The documentary doesn't get near the prowess of its subject; it passes through your life like a minor daydream.

Anyone with less than an encyclopedic knowledge of Dick's work will leave this film clueless as to what the Gospel According to Philip K. Dick might actually be.

Dallies too briefly with Dick's writing, and too expansively with speculations about what Dick may or may not have experienced in February and March of 1974.

Spliced in are some really cheap animation segments and monotonous techno analog music, along with, alas, only the merest flashes of Dick's self-deprecating wit.

Dick's unconventional life and career and his often brilliant work deserve better treatment and more comprehensiveness than they receive here.

A labor of love, designed to appeal to fans and novices alike.

Badly-made documentary on the prolific sci-fi writer.

There's a gaping hole at the film's center. And, at a brief 80 minutes, it still feels padded

The few bizarre stories of Phil's life that are provided in this film, and the goofy animated sequences also included ... don't effectively sell the author to the public.

By focusing on them almost to the exclusion of anything that came before, this documentary limits its audience to diehard fans.
