This film is NOT for everybody, but those of us (like myself)that were born during that era (1968 - 1971) and love stock footage of rare interviews and weirdness, might enjoy it. It is obviously meant for viewing by the drug culture with an "All You Need Is Love" message and has really rare videos of people like John Farnham & Russell Morris.
There are interviews with Mick Jagger and a preview of Arthur Lee and then juxtaposes off to car advertisements, pictures of Alan Ginsberg and John Lennon and then to robots and Twiggy. There are scenes from India (with a sitar playing) and then Vietnam war pictures and back to American life with surfers and Beach Boys music. Very bizarre and that is what makes it fascinating, very dated, but fascinating.
