Again it seems I was too hasty. Your points seem valid. What I've recently discovered is that another Jeffrey Gold movie says, in its closing lines, "Perhaps Eli Khamarov captured it best when he wrote: A sacred privilege is flight.". Quite a quotation, you'll have to agree. Anyway, the truth is out there. So are dogs, cats and cows. Let's see if we can find any.

If you read the cambrigefilms page in light of what we've already discovered, it's pretty blatantly exaggerated if it's not completely false...
"Author and biographer John Robert Ciet" has no books on amazon.com, nor are there any books by any Ciet in the Library of Congress database ( http://www.loc.gov )
"the foremost social philosopher ... Eli Khamarov" - if this is the foremost social philosopher, the others must be amazingly "unfamous".
The bit about the coffee house frequented by the villagers/locals of Ogunquit (pop. 1226) bothers me but it's not impossible.
"Widely known and respected" - or not so widely
"considered by many the leading social theorist and apologist" - many? leading - again I feel sorry for the followers if this is the leader
"has injected his thoughts on society mainly through his books "Lives of the Cognoscenti" and "Surviving on Planet Reebok" and occasional articles in leading contemporary journals." Okay, we've already covered that the books are not listed in the Library of Congress which they should be if they'd been printed by even a university press, but how about these "leading contemporary journals"? Not one of them has an article index that's getting indexed by Google? Perhaps someone has access to something more specific to check this.
"has not endeared him to any side of the political mainstream" - yet none of these haters has bothered to vent their spleen on the Internet - again, this is not impossible but...
