This documentary is an exploitation film aimed at further alarming middle-class Americans about hippies. No real insight is given into the reasons hippies adopted the alternative lifestyle, as the camera focuses on enclaves in San Francisco, Los Angeles, and a rural commune dubbed Strawberry Fields. Psychedelic dance rituals, drug use, body painting, and incoherent babbling of the hippies sensationalize instead of educate as to the reasons so much of the youth of the world is involved in the counterculture. The visit to the commune could have been revealing, but the round table philosophical discussion only adds to the confusion and offers no illumination. The political, economic, and social relevance of the movement remains unexplained. ~ Dan Pavlides, All Movie Guide

An accurate portrayal of societal leaches. by 1angryscot November 13, 2009 - 10:26 AM PST

The reason why there is no illumination on the subject is because there is nothing to illuminate. The element accurately portrayed in this film were selfish, hedonistic freaks who copped out and contributed absolutely nothing of value to Western society.

The memories, the flashbacks, amusement & horror (at the clothing lol) Now that I am of the age group that lived through this movies era, and am on the way out (of this reality) the memories it brought back were good, thank you. As far as the production company that relessed this? Another stinker, what could we do without you folks? You sure improve my quality of life by releasing these movies!

Hippie Dippie: Far Out!
Films about hippies or films that illustrate the hippie ideology. Music, activism, psychedelics, peace, harmony and dissent! Get out your bellbottoms and take to the streets! I wish the "Cockettes" was out on DVD, because it would be at the top of my list
