Decent obscurity from 1971, 21 February 2003
Author: Howard Sauertieg from Harrisburg, PA

Actually filmed in 1971 for theatrical release, this is a late-60s time capsule of counter-cultural themes. It shares some traits with EASY RIDER, being a "road movie" with a graphically depicted acid trip, a cemetery seen through a distorting lens, hippie communes, drugs, and evil murderous rednecks. There's a familiar-sounding (obligatory) rock music soundtrack.

The main character is a priest who "drops out" and hits the road to find himself, or get away from it all, or something like that. ELECTRIC SHADES OF GREY (the title) refers to moral & ethical ambiguities that complicate our lives and undercut easy idealism and efforts to be "good." The priest resolves his personal crisis in a surprise (?) ending that reinforces the theme of ambiguity.
