Finally, a new Dick flick! RFA (the movie based on a 1985 Philip K. Dick book Radio Free Albemuth) is available for viewing! I watched via Amazon.com streaming video. Here’s my article about the film in PKD Otaku #31 (just published August 20, 2014.) Here’s the FULL Edition of PKD Otaku #31 (NOTE: it’s a few megs, for those with slow connections.)
I was more generous in my review on Amazon.com In the Otaku piece I had to be honest with the Phil fans, about some issues in the movie as well as my ongoing concerns about the book. On IMDB (Internet Movie Database) I gave a middle ground review , and also posted a Phil FAQ. As I mention in the FAQ, the Otaku piece will cover the RFA book background and other issues.
Meanwhile, here’s a great RFA review, from one of the newest members of our Facebook Phil Fan group. You get an idea of the movie’s special effects here, and even better from the movie trailer (which I’ve had posted on this Kindred Content page for at least two years.) Has anyone watched the trailer? Well, now you can watch the entire movie from anywhere. That’s why I bought it from Amazon. It stays in my Amazon “cloud” (with my books and other music) and I can just click and watch it on the Kindle Fire anytime, anyplace. It’s worth the price to be able to pop up the pink bream hitting Phil (I mean Niki, I mean NICK 😉 ) in the head anytime I want and show my friends. Love it!
Finally, an oldie but goodie– a review of RFA the book from our PKD fan site. Enjoy!
I created the post on Aug 6, with the IMDB and Amazon movie reviews, and just now updated (Aug 23) with the finished Otaku pieces. PKD Otaku #31 was officially released 8.22.2014 ENJOY!
