Pieces together Doc's phenomenal, wayward life and pays him unsentimental tribute.

An unsparingly personal though also warmly charitable portrait of an impossible man.

Harold L. 'Doc' Humes was an icon of the counter culture, even though in his prime he looked more like a CPA. But looks can be deceiving, as we discover in the lively and loving documentary Doc, directed by one of Humes' four daughters, Immy.

TV Guide

The inclusion of interviews with several cultural giants who are no longer with us -- Mailer, Plimpton, Leary -- make this engaging documentary an even more valuable snapshot of a rich cultural moment that has long passed us by.

As Doc observes, most crazy people are repellent, but H.L. Humes was magnetic.

Immy Humes no doubt needed to make this movie, and the PR set (Mailer, Matthiessen, Plimpton) obviously enjoy the trip down memory lane, but while Doc makes for a fascinating subject, Doc feels intended less for us than for them.
