Quotes

Harlan Ellison: People say to me, even Susan says to me, My God, does everything make you angry? I said, yeah, everything makes me angry. And they say, you know, you should get a little mellow. And I say, oh really? Gee, I had never thought of that.

Interesting, informative.. also funny!
14 January 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I've only read a couple of Ellison's stories ("'Repent, Harlequin!' Said the Ticktockman", and "I Have No Mouth, and I Must Scream", maybe one or two more that I don't remember). I wasn't interested in this documentary because I'm a fan. I have a family connection to an editor of sci-fi work from the period where Ellison was living in and publishing out of New York, and I was curious about whether that connection was mentioned at all. That is the sole, presumptuous, and completely narcissistic reason I watched this film.

It was, regardless of the lack of mention of my niece's grandfather, thoroughly entertaining and informative. Ellison has a knack for storytelling even when he's not telling stories. It's worth watching... for those two or three people wondering whether to watch it or not.
