For the Love of Spock (on DVD)

For the Love of Spock
[DVD Biography Nimoy] 

I had the pleasure of seeing this wonderful documentary in a movie theatre, on the big screen, with a large and appreciative audience, and I can say it looked marvelous under those conditions!
Adam Nimoy, the son of the actor Leonard Nimoy, who brought Star Trek’s Mr. Spock to life for nearly 50 years, has assembled an incredible collection of interviews, performance clips, and rare home videos, to explore the origins of the Spock character, and the impact of Nimoy’s performance on multiple generations of Star Trek fans.

This production was truly a labor of love, and for any devout “Trekkie” or “Trekker”, should be consider must-viewing. It mixes sentimentality with whimsy, and features many wonderful interviews with both entertainment industry professionals and fans alike. I particularly liked the interviews with Zachary Quinto, the actor who has inherited the mantel of Spock in the newer Star Trek films of the 21st century.

Simply put, I loved this documentary!

[If you enjoy this, you may also wish to try tracking down actor Leonard Nimoy’s various noteworthy performances, including all three seasons of classic Star Trek, seasons 4 and 5 of Mission Impossible, the TV-Movie A Woman Called Golda, the updated Outer Limits episode “I, Robot”, and his various scattered appearances on Fringe.]
