Crystal Fairy & the Magical Cactus

The title of this psychedelic road trip extravaganza gives a good idea of the drug-fuelled adventures to come. Crystal Fairy (Gaby Hoffmann), otherwise referred to as the "crazy dancing girl", joins Jamie (Michael Cera) and his Chilean pals as they embark on a road trip to find, and consume, the peyote cactus. The venue of choice is a beautiful beach on the edge of the Atacama desert, which makes for a striking yet simple backdrop for the drama. Cera and the cast actually did dope themselves up on mescalin during filming, so you can expect plenty of twitchy hallucinogenic realism. »
