(*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.

This is also available on Kanopy as of November 3 2017.

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.

This is an interesting and loving tribute to the Star Trek character Spock and Leonard Nimoy, the great man and artist who played him. The documentary was directed by his son Adam Nimoy. I recommend it for both Trekkies and non-Trekkies. I've probably seen only one Star Trek episode in its entirety and none of the movies, and I still enjoyed For the Love of Spock.

I suggested this video for our library and we were not disappointed when we viewed it. My wife and I quite enjoyed this warm and loving tribute. I learned quite a bit and I thought I knew a lot about Nimoy. LLAP :-D
