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 Site
Critic Reviews for Doc
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.
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.
