This feature-length documentary starring the lesser-known gap-toothed cofounder of The Kinks, is the personally-charged memoir of Dave’s long-running quest for enlightenment. Something of an educational and spiritual self-help DVD for those seeking acceptance to their curious thought about astronomical energy, the metaphysical, otherworldly, and other such kooky notions. It’s fair to say that Davies comes across as an ethereal nut in the process, where when he is not reading from script educating the viewer about the intangible, he is bumbling around on screen like a Thunderbirds character strung-out on spiritualism and lysergic flashbacks. Shot like a Channel 5 shock-umentary, it has to be seen to be believed; and what is seen can only be believed with a mescaline suppository, cup of tea and a hefty pinch of salt.
