If you have read three or more of his books and you would really like to know more about the man, then definitely get this DVD. I met him at a convention about twenty years ago. I got to hear him talk and even to hang out with him a little bit. This man had an incredible presence and a beautiful spirit. Yes, I meant the past tense since he has since passed away. The video does a great job capturing the life and essence, and final days, of this heroic, visionary writer.
Be warned that the video plays like a cheesy amateur school project. There's constant nagging background music and blocky unnecessary animation distractions. Personally, I don't mind, I think it's charming. I enjoy listening to the man talk.
As I have since found out, Mr Wilson does jump around a lot.... and so does this movie. It shows him at various ages but I believe that keeps the movie from becoming tedious.
Definitely reminds me of Timothy Leary.
So now I'm buying his books.
Can somebody who is a professional video editor please re-release this item in better quality?
