Editorial Reviews

Product Description

A best-selling Author for 30 years, Carlos Castaneda inspired millions to break free from social dogma, fueling controversy over his work's authenticity and assertions of perceiving non-ordinary reality, during an apprenticeship with Yaqui sorcerer, don Juan Matus. Genius, guru, cult leader or fraud? No one really knows. Over three years in the making, this shocking expose' explores Castaneda's mythic impact, controversial teachings and cult following. Candid interviews backed with dazzling animation and experimental footage offer an intense visual and intellectual experience.

Review

This engrossing movie gets full marks for including the voices of both Castaneda's friends and foes reflecting an ambivalent, still-unresolved attitude toward its subject, ultimately validated as an inspired thinker. A better lesson might be, if you meet a Buddha like Carlos Castaneda in the road -- run like hell in the other direction. --Gregg Rickman, SF Weekly

An interesting documentary that delves into the life of the reclusive writer, showing his flaws (he made up Don Juan) which only makes rational people shake our heads in amazement at the gullible believers. A fascinating tale… --Marc Mohan, Portland Oregonian

With tribal rave music and trippy images cascading in the background...this is both a troubling and enlightening documentary and a true must see for anyone who has ever read Castaneda s books. --Reverand Damuzi, Cannabis Culture
