In Search of the Great Beast – Part Two Second Part of the story of infamous occultist Aleister Crowley…….
Aleister Crowley, self proclaimed The Great Beast and known by press as The Wickedest Man in the World, was perhaps the most controversial and notorious individuals in British History.
This dramatically reconstructed film unearths the barely believable and shocking facts surrounding a man who was voted in a BBC poll to be one of the most influential Britons of all time.
How was he connected to the founder of Scientology, Jack the Ripper, Winston Churchill, Ian Fleming and how did this Occultist, Spy, Poet, Writer and accomplished Mountaineer come to know and influence so many other remarkable people?
Through dramatically reconstructed period scenes, this biographical film explores the boundaries of the self appointed Beast 666′ a man who is not only said to have inspired the free-love movement, but also through his literature is notorious for replacing the Ten Commandments with just one do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the law.
In search of the great beast 666 is a unique documentary / movie style educational film that details the life of Aliester Crowley, the great magician of the new dawn. This is a very unique documentary shot in an extraordinary way.
The documentary itself, directed by Robert Garofalo, is presented in 16:9 widescreen, PAL Region 0 and with Dolby Digital 5.1 sound. Again, all very nice and professional. Garofalo, by the way, isn’t new to this sort of thing: he’s an accomplished director focusing on music performances including, interestingly enough, ‘Rick Wakeman: Live in Buenos Aires’.
Stand-out “reconstructions” are provided by a delightful 1940s Crowley (sensitively portrayed by Thomas Bewley), Allen Bennett (Neil Charnaud) and Rose Kelly (played with touching simplicity by Heather Darcy).
