Best "feel like you're there" Sixties movie
14 March 2003 | by (California) – See all my reviews

I saw this many years ago, but remember it as the best movie to really recreate the feeling of being in the 1960/70's. The government repression, the anger, fear and paranoia are all there. Enough to cause unsettled sleep for 3 nights. I wasn't at Madison, but a much quieter campus, and the experience was the same all over the country. For comparison, I found "Berkeley in the Sisties" to be very boring.
