An Open (Psychedelic) Window Into Yesteryear
31 December 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

For anybody who came of age during the late 1960's/early 1970's,this film will probably be a feather in your cap. This film,shot mostly in a commune in Hawaii that seemed to be centered in various realms of spirituality was directed (?)by Chuck Wein, a former hanger on with Andy Warhol & the Factory clique (a few of which appear in this film). The film seems to be pure improvisation, as there is no screen writer mentioned in the credits,and the cast made up of various members of the commune. Don't try & make any kind of sense out of it (at least in the traditional way,anyway). The film seems to be very organic in it's presentation (shot in 16mm,which vies for it's kitchen sink,do it yourself look). The obvious highpoint of the film is the participation of Jimi Hendrix,who in addition to being filmed at a concert overlooking a volcano,also makes a non musical appearance,conversing with some of the various denizens of the commune. I suppose experiencing this film loaded to the nines on whatever psychedelic drugs one can get their hands on is a "must" for this film (but so were other films of this nature produced between 1967 to 1975). All I can say is, fish out those love beads that have been hiding in that back drawer for the last 30 plus years,turn on that black light,roll another number & drop this in your DVD/VHS player & get 'yer groove on.
