Carlos Castaneda: Enigma of a Sorcerer Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

Directed by Ralph Torjan, this documentary profiles the life of self-proclaimed shaman Carlos Castaneda. Castaneda's LSD-induced visions and other explorations of "non-ordinary reality" helped him develop a devoted following during the late '60s and early '70s -- so much so that he would find himself on the cover of Time magazine in 1973. Though many people dismissed Castaneda as a fraud, an equal amount followed his teachings religiously; however, several prominent believers mysteriously left the Castaneda enlightenment scene after his death in 1998. This production offers a variety of interviews with believers and decriers alike, and implements a wealth of psychedelic computer animation in an effort to impart Castaneda's hallucinogenic nature. ~ Tracie Cooper, Rovi
