An eccentric portrait of an eccentric artistic genius
23 July 2002 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

This documentary traces Douglas Adams' career as a renaissance man though radio, television, books, software, online, music that will long outlive him.

The "cast" is amazing, the environment of the film is intimate and entraining, and I was giggling during half of it, and got a couple good belly laughs.

It's amazing to see just how much Adams did, and how many people he touched in his life. He warped our world of ideas a bit, even for folks who might not realize it.

Fans of SF/fantasy, humor, and biography may want to check this piece out.

More fun than Crumb -- more comfy, too.
