It must be more than okay to be Tokei, it must be fantastic! WatchingGeorge and his husband, Brad, interact with each other and with theircrowds of fans was a great way to hide from an oppressively hot Augustafternoon. Their honest affection for each other and tender regard foreach other's friends and family evoked collective sighs and chucklesfrom a small but appreciative cinema audience.

We see George recount memories of his childhood internment, and thenlater watch him perform in the new theatrical musical, "Allegiance,"bringing those memories to life as he and his collaborators prepare fora Broadway preview later this year. His unmistakable voice, hisinimitable laugh, and charismatic presence are beautifully balanced byBrad's more practical and less animated personality.

"To Be Takei" is a must see for Trekkies and others who appreciate thecontributions of my favorite starship helmsman. Cameos from LeonardNimoy, Nichelle Nichols, and Walter Koenig prove that William Shatneris creepier than a Clingon. And, amazingly enough, I was able to watchHoward Stern without breaking-out in a brain rash. I positively enjoyedthis documentary and look forward to sharing it with others once itbecomes available through my subscription service.

George Takei's a no-brainer for a documentary subject, what with hisbeing 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 italso devotes plenty of time to his childhood relocation and internmentduring WWII. It's here where things turn dark, and the bigotry of theperiod is shocking. And I didn't know that he was instrumental ingetting U.S. government restitution for said internment. Powerfulstuff. There's moderate attention paid to his Star Trek legacy, andit'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, butthere's also shameless editorializing at his expense. It's a bummer.

This movie's fairly mediocre; the focus is scattered and we bouncearound haphazardly. But there's also plenty to learn about the man.

6/10

George Takei, the famous Hikaru Sulu from the classic Star Trek, hashad a life worth to tell. As a kid, he spent some years with his familyin an internment camp on US soil (Yes, Americans did that too).Besides, back in those years of the "Good old America" being a youngAsian actor only meant he would get stereotyped roles. Takei wantedmore, and most certainly he did! Someone that had to endure really hardtimes has become a legend, a cultural icon even.

In this documentary we will meet Takei, his husband and manager Brad,relatives, fans...all of them have their place in Takei's endlessuniverse of love and positivity. There is not a specific approach, notdoses of drama or comedy, but a true depiction of a lovely couple, inwhich one of them turns to be a legend of sci-fi, and much, much more.

To Be Takei is a work about a man that had to trespass literal andmetaphorical fences and boundaries. A story told from the heart, fullof warmth and honesty. The story of a man that has fought againstprejudices, racism and homophobia, always passionately, always in apositive mood. He is and has been an icon to several generations, andstill manages to inspire, like he has done with this documentary. Atleast, he has inspired me, and I hope you watch it, because as healways says "It's OK to be Takei".
