3.0 out of 5 stars Decent, but maybe not to everyone's taste, 4 April 2009
This review is from: More [1969] [DVD] (DVD)
This film gives us a glimpse into the hippie culture of the late 1960's. Shot mostly on the scenic island of Ibiza, it explores the relationship between an enigmatic unconventional girl (nicely played by Mimsy Farmer), who is described as being 'American' but has a perfect English accent, and a naive German drifter. How they meet is not entirely clear, and it is hard to see any real chemistry between them, but they do share some nice times together. They experiment with various drugs, which descends into addiction, ending in tragedy. As another reviewer has hinted, it is hard to warm to either of the main characters. Ultimately this is a moral tale about the dangers of illegal substances.

As a long time Pink Floyd fan, it has been the holy grail of movies to find, as I believe that this DVD release marks the movie's debut in the UK, tho it has long been regarded as a cult classic in France. At long last it was nice to see how the Pink Floyd score was used within with the movie, tho I personally feel we don't hear enough of what is (for me) an under-rated album within their cannon.

In conclusion, this is a decent watch if you're a fan of cult or art house movies, are interested in hippie culture, or are just curious about Pink Floyd's involvement.
