Doc is an unorthodox portrait of literary and counter-culture figure Harold “Doc” Humes, founder of The Paris Review and author of two novels, who struggled with mental illness.  George Plimpton, Norman Mailer, Peter Matthiessen, William Styron and Paul Auster; avant-garde filmmaker Jonas Mekas; and the pied piper of LSD, Timothy Leary—recall an extraordinary man who defied all categories and expectations.
