Storyline

A montage of the weird, a freak-out film that appeared when the expression was in fashion and in flower, along with the flower people. The film was one of the first exponents of the mobile camera-rock track-optical effect school of filmmaking, and it is much a document as it is a documentary. A repellent and fascinating depiction of the Sunset Strip in Hollywood, along with Haight-Ashbury in San Francisco and the East Village in New York. Tiny Tim amounts to something resembling a recurring motif and narrator. Written by alfiehitchie

It was good enough to see twice.
12 January 2001 | by (Pacific Northwest) – See all my reviews

I saw this at the Guild Theater in Portland when it first came out. It was a series of disconnected segments about various hip things going on in California in 1966-68, all set to music. Almost like a set of music videos.

A couple of the segments had to do with Family Dog, one of the more well known communal groups. One terrific segment was Frank Zappa playing a concert in LA. He was just sitting in a straight-back chair in one corner of a club with a light show going on playing unbeatable guitar.

Another part I vaguely remember was a song about a boy in his house. The song was silly/sweet and the camera followed a fiesty little three-year-old all over. Tiny Tim's number was mostly a head shot of him singing.

Peter, of Paul and Mary was one of the producers.

I liked it so much I went back to see it again. Mostly for the music. I'd like to get the soundtrack. I never met anyone else who saw it.
