When Barbet Schroder's first 2 movies (this and The Valley) are discussed it's always in the context of Pink Floyd. Now I've nothing against this band, indeed their musical contributions to these movies are excellent (although sparingly used) but there's so much more(no pun intended) to enjoy. I found this film an engrossing experience. The acting is naturalistic and believable, the locations are beautifully shot, the druggy descent well charted. Loved the Don Quixote windmill scene, thought Mimsy Farmer was excellent (and stunning). The ending was a little abrupt - I preferred the ambiguity of The Valley, but overall this is a fascinating look at the death of the hippy dream and well worth your time.
