Life’s an adventure
George Takei is best known as Hikaru Sulu on Star Trek. This documentary does hook on this role but does not linger for too long. The in-depth view of this extraordinary Asian-American. George survived the Asian internment camps during WWII in Arkansas. A chapter not often spoken about in our American history, this was tough. George fought the Hollywood stereotype of Asians on film and TV. He also has served as a role model as a gay man who came out late in life. Along with his life long partner Brad, this movie masterfully showcases a full life. A brilliant on screen look behind this well known pop culture icon. A fascinating look into one man’s extraordinary life.
A bit thrown-together, but it’s decent
George Takei’s a no-brainer for a documentary subject, what with his being a pillar of the LGBT community and as a social media force. And “To Be Takei” devotes plenty of time to this facet of his life. But it also devotes plenty of time to his childhood relocation and internment during WWII. It’s here where things turn dark, and the bigotry of the period is shocking. And I didn’t know that he was instrumental in getting U.S. government restitution for said internment. Powerful stuff. There’s moderate attention paid to his Star Trek legacy, and it’s here where the movie disappoints. Shatner comes off as a dick, which is kinda sad. I know there’s truth to the bad blood story, but there’s also shameless editorializing at his expense. It’s a bummer.
This movie’s fairly mediocre; the focus is scattered and we bounce around haphazardly. But there’s also plenty to learn about the man.
