The Wizard of Speed and Time (1988)

Is the Wizard playing the sytem or is the system playing the Wizard?

Is the Wizard playing the sytem or is the system playing the Wizard?

The story of Mike Jittlov continues to fascinate me. The Wizard of Speed and Time is a blatantly self-referential movie laced with a high level of bitterness towards the movie industry. For a man so in love with the magic of movies, it’s both sad and peculiar to watch Jittlov take every opportunity possible to bite the hand that might feed him. As I shared this strange, ‘children’s’ film with others, I was glad to I am not the only person intrigued by Mike Jittlov or should I say, The Wizard?

For the first time I noticed the credits listing the character of Mike Jittlov being played by the Wizard and the Wizard as being played by himself. So, perhaps there is no Mike Jittlov?
