Goofs

It is mentioned in the narration that Anton LaVey (founder of the "Church of Satan") was cast as the devil in Roman Polanski's "Rosemary's Baby". This is an urban legend and absolutely false. He had no involvement in the film at all. See more »

A fascist piece of disinformation.
20 April 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This "documentary" had a definite agenda that distorts the actual impetus of the hippie movement. As in any group there were negative aspects and people who took advantage of the circumstances and dynamics. To suggest that the movement attracted mostly criminals is ridiculous. There were good and bad people. People did drugs but it wasn't the driving force behind the movement as claimed by the producers of this piece of crap. The documentary claims that John Lennon had a 1000 acid trips but makes no documentation of this.Lennon never claimed that he was Jesus Christ. He did offend christians by claimin the Beatles were more popular than Christ. That is the main problem that this film has. It makes ridiculous claims and offers no proof that they are true. The makers did get one thing right and that is the perverse clandestine efforts of the federal government to suppress political dissent against the war in Vietnam, the aggressive arms industry and the promotion of racial equality. As in present times, the resistance to and fear of meaningful change was the key motivation of those in power.
