a more accurate title would be "The last trip of Ken Kesey and Timothy Leary"
22 January 2006 | by (estonia) – See all my reviews

Last Trip gives a brief introduction to LSD, the lives of Timothy Leary and Ken Kesey with the Merry Pranksters. The documentary comes out giving a nostalgic feel of fading icons of the psychedelic revolution. Different from other documentaries on the topic like "Beyond life" and "The man who turned on America" it doesn't focus on the controversies of LSD or alone on the life of Leary. The narrator is the son of a Merry Prakster Ken Babbs, so what would you expect? What i like about it is that after having watched all of the documentaries on the "sixties" topic this one gives just that - the lives of others than Leary. For instance the tale of the Merry Prankster Furthur bus, which toured around the States. While Leary was a meditating "scientist" and Kesey was a recretional "party animal", they both had much in common and were both icons of the time. This documentary gives insight of their last reunion and doings before the death on Leary. The latter half of the documentary serves their lives after having "turned on" and "passing the acid test", as old men of a fading era saying that the "revolution isn't over" and "we'll trip on the other side". Which might be true now, since they're both dead.
