The Gospel according to Philip K. Dick
A profile of the life of the influential science fiction writer, Philip K. Dick presented through interviews with contemporaries and excerpts from his writings. Dick's writing and ideas on reality, humanity and technology which blend West Coast utopianism, counterculture paranoia and mystical experience have been adapted into films, including Blade Runner and Total Recall. Since very little interview footage exists of Philip K. Dick, this documentary relies on audio taped interviews with Dick, allowing him to comment in his own words.
Commentary: Ray Nelson, Robert Anton Wilson, Paul Williams, D. Scott Apel, Miriam Lloyd.
Features include director interview, behind the scenes photo gallery, and the Philip K. Dicktionary.
A good look into the life of one of our best Sci-fi writers. Philip could be considered the father of modern filmic science fiction.~Mike
