An insight into the mind of a true visionary
5 November 2012 | by timotheyidoSee all my reviews

A great documentary- I really felt 90% of the people interviewed gave a great insight into PKD. The mind of a truly great visionary explored as his life is detailed by many of the people that were closest to him. Dick didn't just get close to edge...he leapt off it & returned with the prose to prove it! The greatest Sci-Fi writer that ever lived. Recommended Films; Blade Runner (Do Androids Dream Of Electric Sheep?), A Scanner Darkly, Minority Report, Total Recall (We Can Remember It For You Wholesale). Recommended Books; THE MAN IN THE HIGH CASTLE, THE THREE STIGMATA OF PALMER ELDRITCH, DO ANDROIDS DREAM OF ELECTRIC SHEEP? UBIK, MARTIAN TIME-SLIP, DR. BLOODMONEY (OR HOW WE GOT ALONG AFTER THE BOMB), NOW WAIT FOR LAST YEAR, FLOW MY TEARS THE POLICEMAN SAID, A SCANNER DARKLY, A MAZE OF DEATH, VALIS, THE DIVINE INVASION, THE TRANSMIGRATION OF TIMOTHY ARCHER. Anyone know why Pavarotti's pictured on the review page? Ha.
