A mind worth encountering...in some sense
7 January 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Although much of Wilson's work "is" only either glossed over quickly or not mentioned at all, this film still contains a fitting overview of a fantastic writer.

I am an avid fan of Mr. Wilson and advise anyone who has either had brief encounters with him or none at all should see this piece and then read some of his books. Well worth the time...

Open your mind and let the multitude of information nuggets that Wilson has collected over his life of study flood in, taking you through the magick of language to quantum pycology, round conspiracy and politics to astral plains, reality tunnels and the persistance of the idiot...

Love life...be optimistic and keep smiling...Why can't we write shorter reviews for IMDb?
