2012 #114 - Harlan Ellison: Dreams With Sharp Teeth
Another documentary that was up on Instant Watch that was taken down recently, this one centers around the cantankerous writer extraordinaire Harlan Ellison, who isn’t afraid to speak his mind and sue your pants off if you’ve taken a story idea he wrote 20 or 30 years before. I love the guy, others hate his attitude, but he grew up fighting because he was weak to bullies. And considering he is one of the most influential writers of the 20th century in a class that, in my opinion, includes Ray Bradbury, Philip K. Dick and Rod Serling, it’s no easy feat. It’s a great inside look into his life, his upbringing and his fame. Just a great documentary.
