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?
