To Be Takei Review by Spencer Blohm

TakeiStockPhoto062014

The beloved George Takei, better known as the original Sulu around these parts, is the subject of a new documentary by Filmmaker Jennifer Krootz called To Be Takei. The documentary looks at the entirety of George’s life; covering everything including his difficult childhood, his breakthrough role on Star Trek, and his activism in recent years. It is currently available exclusively on DIRECTV, from July 3rd to August 5th, before the film is released in theaters August 22.

Krootz begins the film with Takei’s childhood, which was relatively simple until America was thrust into WWII following the attack on Pearl Harbor by the Japanese. As a Japanese-American, Takei and his family were the victims of paranoia within the U.S. government, and were taken from their home in California to be placed in an internment camp in Arkansas. From the age of five until he was eight, Takei lived the life of a prisoner, an event which had a profound effect on him, as he describes in the film.
