Arts Hub review RADIO FREE ALBEMUTH by Leon Marvel.

“What finally distinguishes Radio Free Albemuth from all previous adaptations is that this film has soul, and I am pretty sure that Philip K. Dick would agree.”

“You don’t have to be a fan of Philip K. Dick or science fiction to enjoy this film. Radio Free Albemuth should be mandatory viewing for anyone who is interested in vital, independent cinema. If you get the chance to see it, don’t miss it.”

Perth Revelation Film Festival Review

“The performances in Radio Free Albemuth are all very strong and the story is really engaging up until the last frame. Alanis Morissette turns in a solid performance as Sylvia, a woman who helps Nick along his path of transcendent realization…”

“…I haven’t even mentioned screening a blu-ray final cut of RADIO FREE ALBEMUTH with director John Alan Simon when I was down in LA.  I will.  But let me just say this about that: I am now a believer in this film and I will do everything in my power to get this film a distribution deal.  Become the film’s friend on Facebook, write your congressmen, or local theater house, or your ultra-rich uncle.  Tell people about this.  Let’s get the lamestream media involved!”

“The Politics of Mystical Experience”

Written by Gabriel McKee

SF Gospel: Explorations of Religion in Science Fiction and Popular Culture from the author of THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO SCIENCE FICTION.

“The screenplay hews closely to the novel in both structure and content– something that no other PKD adaptation has done except A Scanner Darkly.”

“The film transcribes the story with painstaking care. That’s not to say there isn’t some creative interpretation going on, but the film handles that interpretation smartly.”
