This review is from: Mock Up on Mu (DVD)
This is a very interesting cinematic experiment, and if you know the back-story, and if you are a fan of b-grade sci-fi movies from the 30s on through the 1950s, you will really enjoy Mock up on Mu. The actual footage shot, or used, is only ten percent of the film; the rest is a well edited collage of old movie clips with the new sound track running v.o. This in itself is not a new technique, but to do a whole film this way is an innovation -- and it works (at least for me it does). If you don't know anything about L. Ron Hubbard, Jack and Cameron Parsons, and their magical high jinks in the late 1940s you may find yourself lost in a surrealistic maze. So, I suggest you read "Strange Angel, " and/or "Sex and Rockets" before you watch Mock up on Mu, then you will really enjoy it -- that is if you enjoyed the misadventures of America's favorite mad scientist and his nemesis who became the mad guru of you-know-what. It's better than South Park.

It's a shame there isn't more interest in this film. The editing of all the material was an accomplishment in itself.
