Adam clearly lacked the perspective required to contain the story, which lurches into all sorts of odd and personal digressions, but as a celebration of the original 1966-'69 series this is first-rate.
Whatever its flaws, "For the Love of Spock" mostly works for those with an interest in the man or a love of the series. And if the director was perhaps too close to the subject, that, too, has a certain logic to it.
The countless devoted fans of Nimoy and his character virtually guarantee that For the Love of Spock will live long and prosper.
Gives fans an unprecedented glimpse of the thinking that went between the iconic prosthetic ears.
A lively, often hilarious collection of talking heads that includes fans and actors from the original and current incarnations of Star Trek.
A loving tribute in general to Star Trek and in particular to the man who gave more than half of his life to Spock.
For The Love of Spock honors the life of Leonard Nimoy in a very well-made documentary.
It goes without saying that each of us was saddened by Nimoy's passing last year, and The Love of Spock reminds us we weren't alone.
Occasionally threatens to become an overly glossy offering of hero worship, but it retains a degree of honesty, making sure to identify the man before the Vulcan.
For the Love of Spock is a bittersweet yet eminently intriguing profile of a man who ultimately did live long and, yes, prosper.
Most of all, it is a beautiful tribute both of a filmmaker to a subject and a son to his father.
[A] personal yet informative tribute.
A love letter from a son to his father. Director Adam Nimoy, who also appears on screen along with the many other celebrities sharing their admiration for his father Leonard Nimoy, explores his dad's personal and professional life. Excellent use of archival material to support the talking heads. There is both amazing home movie footage as well as clips from LN's mass media work, which all of us fans are already familiar. Even his music album with the song The Ballad of Bilbo Baggins gets a mention. A man who embodied the Live Long and Prosper ethos of his most famous pop culture character.
Less of a documentary and more of a memorial, this is a curious behind-the-scenes (but not too behind-the-scenes) look at a popular cultural icon. Meant for the fans of the series there is an unintended element that somehow works to trivialize the proceedings.
