For the Love of Spock (2016)

Director: Adam Nimoy. 111 min. Canada/USA. Documentary.

Adam Nimoy, Leonard's son, chronicles his father's life and success as Spock, in a documentary he started making before his father's death. Almost none of the interesting stories told here about Nimoy are new to a Star Trek fan. This merely leaves us with the narration of the difficult relationship Adam had with his father. In other words, while describing Leonard Nimoy's personal troubles with his son makes this a more intimate story, you end up learning more about the son than the father - and that's not what you look for in a movie promising to be about Spock.
