Dreams With Sharp Teeth
Having once mailed a dead gopher to a publishing house, it cannot be argued that Harlan Ellison is a man without eccentricities. Known best for the episode of Star Trek, “The City on the Edge of Forever,” this documentary allows a glimpse into the oft-forgotten life of a professional writer, a particularly talented and unconventional one at that. The documentary allows for Ellison to discuss any topic he so wishes and also interweaves interviews with his closest friends that provide insight into this interesting puzzle of a man. If you find yourself with an hour and a half, this is a fascinating film about a man who has made great contributions to the world of anthologies, public writing and science fiction.
