For The Love Of Spock

Directed by Leonard Nimoy's son Adam this documentary on the man who played Spock in the classic '66 TV series seems a bit more about the struggle of a father and son to reconnect after the casualties of achieving fame as a pop culture icon. It portrays Nimoy (Leonard) as a thoughtful actor and even though it's something of a puff piece I did enjoy it. I would have preferred less from the modern day cast of the JJ ABRAMS Star Trek films but I suspect Paramount required their participation in return for the use of clips from the show. To be fair, Nimoy did play Spock in the modern films so there is justification in having them there, I'm just not a fan of the reboot.

This is making the way through the art house circuits and it's already on Blu Ray. If you liked the original show this offers some nice behind the scenes footage of Nimoy during his peak on the show.

I almost contributed to the Kickstarter campaign for this, but decided not to at the last moment. I am a huge Star Trek: TOS fan, call me a Trekkie I don't care, but felt this might end up a bit of a puff piece. Glad I held off, I'll still check it out, but on Netflix or whatever. Doesn't seem like something I need to own and/or would revisit.

Always be yourself! Unless you can be Batman...then always be Batman!
