(*Memorable "Spock" quote*) - "Live long and prosper."

If you l-o-v-e Spock (aka. Leonard Nimoy) - Then - You really gotta see "For the Love of Spock".

Nimoy had played the Spock character for 50 years - And, I think that you will agree with me - He portrayed his beloved alter-ego perfectly.

Through stills, rare film-footage, and interviews with both Nimoy family members and those who had worked around him - Nimoy is unanimously looked upon, by one and all, with the greatest of admiration and respect.

This intriguing and informative documentary is, indeed, a labour of love that was directed by Adam Nimoy, Leonard's grown son (who clearly shows a striking resemblance to his father).

*Note* - In 2015 - Leonard Nimoy (83 at the time) died from incurable lung disease.

A great tribute to a remarkable man, and his challenging relationship with Alcohol and nicotine. Gives me incentive to go and chase up some of his Star Trek movies which I was only peripherally aware of.

What a wonderful tribute to an amazing, all-too-human, actor, as well as to one of the most "fascinating" characters ever created.

If you have ever felt left out or like an "alien" in a strange place, you'll enjoy this documentary. Fascinating look at how a character is developed over time as well. And if you are a "Trekkie", this is a MUST. Live long and prosper.
