smndvdcl's rating of the film Thomas Pynchon: A Journey Into the Mind of P.

The driving forces of Thomas Pynchon's writing are derailed by a very silly hunt to find the reclusive writer. Evaluations of the socio-political contexts surrounding his work are interesting - code-breaking, government LSD and mescaline experimentations, conspiracies within conspiracies, paranoia relating to fascist undercurrents in society... but these epiphanies are brief. The 'white noise' soundtrack grates too.
