A great documentary that will give every Douglas Adams fan a feel for what it may have been like to know Douglas.
4 September 2002 | by (Cincinnati, Ohio, USA) – See all my reviews



When I learned of Douglas Adams' untimely death, I remember thinking 'why is the news of the death of someone I never met such a jolt to me?'.

After watching this documentary and listening to the reminiscings of those who did know and love Douglas, I feel my question has finally been answered. Here you will find his family and friends reliving some of their experiences with Douglas by telling their stories and sharing a bit of the joy it must have been to have known him personally. It becomes obvious that what I had always just assumed to be a unique writing style was actually his exuberance shining through. Thanks to this documentary I now feel as though I understand what it would have been like to be in the fringes of his life.

This production does an excellent job of chronicling Douglas' works, but more importantly gives you a feel for the man himself. Even long time fans will find a few surprises about Douglas here.
