I was not disappointed. This particular interview with Colin Wilson delightfully takes place in the intimate setting of his own home in Cornwall, England; watching an older (he's now 80) Wilson, walking around and sitting in his humble abode and reminiscing about his early life and work, is perhaps my fondest encounter with this intriguing thinker and visionary to date. At first, it was somewhat distracting listening to Wilson speak while this varied-music soundtrack was incessantly vying for one's attention--but after awhile one grows assumed to it as it somehow seems to add to the full ambiance of the interview. It was also interesting to watch his wife, Joy--his companion for over 57 years being interviewed at the end of the DVD. The interviewers and creators of this DVD are to be commended for their efforts in weaving together this most cherished account of Colin Wilson. Also, watching the coming attractions have spurred my interest in purchasing future "Reality Films" productions.
