Critic Reviews

  1. Amounts to an infomercial posing as an expose.
  2. Reviewed by: Dennis Harvey
    Though interviews here are primarily with former camp followers and pic was made by one, overall perspective is just critical enough to satisfy both New Age types and curious skeptics.

    Does little to unravel the riddle of the title. Unless you are already a fan of Castaneda, the film is likely to leave you feeling as though you've just watched a very long, lost episode of that old TV series "In Search of ..."
  4. 40
    It becomes hard to tell just what Castaneda was advocating, apart from the liberal use of psychedelic drugs.
  5. 40
    Marred by lack of a clear strategy and an over-reliance on audio-visual trickery.
  6. Not only doesn't provide any real information, it barely manages to convey why we should care. It represents a true squandering of a potentially fascinating subject.
