A Bio-Documentary of Phil Dick
7 February 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Not sure what to make of this. For what seems like a relatively lower budget documentary, they did alright and put things on the record for fans and historians to judge.

Another reviewer had a problem with the "silly framing device", and I have to agree. Why do we have FBI agents listening to recordings? Instead, we could have cut that cheesy stuff and maybe threw in people reading from actual FBI documents involving Dick -- some wild stuff out there.

Overall, they had some good interviews and it was especially great to get a bit of Dan O'Bannon on film. This is not the best Dick film out there, but for fans it may have to be essential just the same. I would love to see one serious one combining the clips of each and adding something new.
