Editorial Reviews

Italian-born Laura Huxley, a teenage violin virtuoso, played for European royalty and made her American debut at Carnegie Hall before leaving the concert stage to become a renowned psychotherapist and author. In 1956 Laura married Aldous Huxley, author of BRAVE NEW WORLD, literary giant and prophet of the 20th century.

In the conservative 1950s, the Huxley home in the Hollywood Hills was the center of the artistic and intellectual avant-garde of Los Angeles. Guests to their famous Saturday luncheons included George Cukor, Igor Stravinsky, Orson Welles and Christopher Isherwood. The Huxleys' passionate search to find higher levels of consciousness included their controversial experimentation with psychedelic drugs. Narrated by Peter Coyote and featuring interviews with such luminaries as John Densmore, Michael Murphy, Nick Nolte and Ram Dass, HUXLEY ON HUXLEY offers a compelling glimpse of Laura's life with Aldous, as well as the revolutionary and provocative work that had a major influence on American and contemporary cultural history.

And even that is superficial.

And though one might not expect much in the way of insight from a rock drummer, some very interesting comments comes from john Densmore of the Doors.

Aldous was a prophet and his future world of the year 2,600 is here now.

Huxley on Huxley is a warm and moving dual portrait of Aldous and Laura Huxley through Laura's poignant recollections of her famous husband who authored the most influential novel of the 20th Century, Brave New World. Aldous was a prophet and his future world of the year 2,600 is here now. Aldous was a brilliant philosopher as well, helping to popularize eastern mysticism, which bloomed in the 1960s and remains as strong as ever. Yet, what is most remembered about him by those who knew him was his humility and profound kindness. He could have been rich but chose to give help to others and did so modestly with no publicity. This is the man that Laura shows viewers. And Laura Huxley was as formidable as Aldous--an accomplished concert violinist, and author of self help books long before her best sellers had their own category in book stores. She is our guide in this moving documentary crafted lovingly by Mary Ann Braubach who enlisted very willing accomplices such as narrator Peter Coyote, Nick Nolte, John Densmore (The Doors), Ram Dass, Huston Smith, and Laura's granddaughter Karen Pfeiffer. As a Huxley expert (and fan) this is a treasure and one that can be appreciated by all viewers as a window to a time when intellectual humanism was still a virtue to be deeply appreciated.

David Garrett Izzo has published three books and many essays on Huxley, as well as the award-winning historical novel, A Change of Heart, in which Huxley is the main "character."

Loved this film. Learned an incredible amount of information! Didn't know that much about the Huxley family, except for the basics, and was pleasantly surprised at the detail the filmmakers took the time to present. And the Jim Morrison connection is GREAT! I highly recommend this movie! You will not be disappointed!

Good stuff, a lot here I never knew about Huxley and a great glimpse at that whole group of intellectuals who Huxley associated with.

This is a great documentary. It moves along at a very nice pace, it covers a broad range of people and issues but it always feels centered and focused. The research is impressive, especially into the LSD testing of the time period, and you realize how much of an impact BOTH Huxley's work had on the counter-culture. A nice foray into a part of literary history I did not know much about.

It is worth the time to watch this and learn more about this couple. Mrs Huxley is very interesting indeed.

A very personal look at Aldous by his wife Laura. Great for people who want to know about Huxley's Mescaline experiments in Hollywood, and what it was like to live with Huxley, but other wise the DVD can be quite boring to people unfamiliar with Huxley. Since I read Brave New World in High School I've been a fan of the great man so I enjoyed this DVD.

After perusing the web about Huxley, I found this documentary. It was incredibly informative and fascinating, especially since I didn't know a lot about Huxley's personal life. To see it through his wife, it was a good experience. Fans of Huxley will find the details of his life and his luncheons enjoyable. Recommend for sure.

What a disappointment. I thought I would be seeing some insightful perspective on Aldous Huxley. Hardly. The comments are restricted to Laura Huxley, his second wife. The film is for and about her. She seems a bright and vital lady, but other than her marriage, not a particularly interesting one.
