Aleister Crowley was a man of mystery and many talents, and this documentary hopes to reveal some of his secrets to the world. Veteran Actor Joss Ackland (the Hunt For Red October) lends his voice to the famed occultist who may have lived from 1875-1947, but whose influence extends into the 21st Century.

IN SEARCH OF THE GREAT BEAST 666 features music from prog-rock pioneer Rick Wakeman.

I liked the visuals, but the subject matter wasn't as interesting to me.

Was more like an audiobook, with the video adding little to the documentary. There was nothing specific about the rituals or his beliefs. I was more interested in Crowley before watching this.

Dull and witless. When it tries to be witty, it falls on its face. Thumbs down.

If you have 2 hours, I highly recommend one of the best in-depth "documentaries" on Aleister Crowley.."The Great Beast" as he liked to call himself. From his beginnings as a child in a "Christian" cult..to becoming a member of the Golden Dawn, among many other Orders, up to the possible connection between him and First Lady Barbara Bush's mother (she served as a Magickal Sex Assistant in some of his satanic rituals)..to one of his apprentices, L. Ron Hubbard...a MOST fascinating film.
