This is a wonderful low-budget grindhouse movie from Rogar Corman, yet Amazon have put the wrong running time, the correct running time is 76 minutes, which sad to say means the film is still cut by 9 MINUTES of its orginal running time and yet its still a 18, just a sad sign of our times!

the superb title music by electric flag sets the scene for one of the most adventurous of cinematic offerings.having been banned for some twenty-odd years it's nice to see this finally appear on proper dvd release.just why it was banned is unknown and seemingly absurd, of course it portrays drug taking with little emphasis on the dangers surrounding such indulgence,but to argue depiction of such behaviour promotes others to follow suit would suggest that all films with any violence or portayal of war should also be banned.if a subject can be conceived it should be allowed to be shown.to try to dismiss a vital part of sixties society would be to mould history in a false manner.besides the beauty of the film renders all objections irrelevant.it offers stunning visuals and great actors.A real slice of psychedelic culture and despite seeming slightly dated, has it's heart in the right place.far out man!

Directed by Roger Corman. Starring Peter Fonda as the tripper and Bruce Dern and the californian LSD guide this film is hard to match for psychedelic cheesyness. Filmed in the midst of the Haight Ashbusy Californian psychedelic rollercoaster this film tries hard to convey the archetypal "scene" of sixties.
Crude special effects cant capture or portray the awesome depth and power of LSD but I think Fonda's naked thrashing about captures it just fine.
Summary: Take LSD and get naked for best effects!
Groovy man. Can you dig it.

I was pleased to see Jack Nicholson's screenplay and the authenticity of that psychedelic (San Francisco) period; manner and fashion.

Written By Jack Nicholson !
Directed by Roger Corman !
Featuring Dennis Hopper , Peter Fonda , Bruce Dern & Susan Strasbourg ! ! ! ?
This Films Got The Lot ! Very Thin plot line , Divorce , Heartbreak , ambivalence ( the whole point of the film is the trip not the story )
A great per -courser exercise, before Easy Rider ,in trying to get the message across by a bunch of stoned tripped out Hollywood L.A actors in 1967.
Awesome Music By The Electric Flag , incredible Psychedelic Light Shows that show the complexity of apparent Primitive Effcects,
some brilliant camera work ( story goes all the cast and crew and Roger Corman , who had not had LSD , went up to Big Sur and all tripped , to get the feel for the coming film shoot )
Judge for yourself, but i think it worked a treat.
Get This , It's Great !

This film is about watching other people tripping, which is one of the archetypally boring experiences. Saddled with a turgid script by Jack Nicholson which I'm sure he'd rather forget, it spends a lot of time "explaining" LSD to the audience. Peter Fonda, who looks as if he's taken mogadon rather than acid, spends a lot of time wandering around the city and looking at lights. Girls are always available and always groovy. The special trip effects are pathetic, and not surprising given Corman's budget, and the music is only passable. The film only perks up in one scene in a launderette between an out-of-it Fonda and a lady doing her laundry. I don't care if this film is cut or uncut, at 79 minutes it is still way too long. Stick to "Easy Rider" Easy Rider [DVD] [1969] instead.

There is a bit of truth in all other reviews. The movie is low-budget and dates back to the sixties, so it would not be fair to expect high tech special effects. I find these anyway quite good in so far the viewer gets a pretty good the feel for the LSD induced allucinations. It is also true that the movie may be boring at time - as any movie aimed at describing someone tripping, I would suspect. The script is not overwhelming, but what else would one expect by the subject? It think this movie should be seen in the context it was made, and enjoyed for what it can bring - never mind Peter Fonda dressed in white running in a forest being chased by black knights.

Big Mistake Shoulld never have bought this one. One of the 1960's drug fuelled arty farty films. However the case came in useful to replace a broken one. Ho Hum
