Spy Vibers who view content from Amazon can now stream In My Mind, a fascinating (and appropriately experimental) documentary about The Prisoner. From the press release: "A feature documentary made to celebrate the 50th anniversary of The Prisoner, In My Mind is written and directed by award-winning documentary filmmaker Chris Rodley. The film recounts one of Chris's early filmmaking experiences: an attempt to interview Patrick McGoohan about his enigmatic series – something McGoohan had resisted previously – for a Channel 4-commissioned documentary. A documentary that didn't quite go to plan. In a series of frank interviews conducted by Chris, most of which ultimately remained unused in the 1983 documentary Six Into One – The Prisoner File, McGoohan slowly reveals his innermost thoughts regarding his concept. Disowned by McGoohan at the time, Six Into One is now locked away forever, but paved the way for this new film, which sets out to put the record straight some thirty-five years later. Featuring new interviews with his daughter Catherine McGoohan – who offers insightful and informed views on her father’s inner emotional and psychological state of mind – and featuring never-before-seen archive footage, this is the definitive story of The Prisoner as told by its creator." Definitely worth checking out! And if you have a region-free (or Region B) player, I highly recommend picking up the Blu-ray from Network. Note: Prime members may still have to pay a small fee in order to watch the film on Amazon. Enjoy! In other news, my episodes on Cocktail Nation radio have started up for the new year. This month I introduce Gerry Anderson's Mod masterpiece, UFO.
