I supposed that the few hippies who bothered to see "An American Hippie In Israel" during its theatrical release probably reacted with a "far out!" at the time. But I think that if those same people were to see the movie today, they would wonder, "What were we thinking?" It's a real head-scratcher of a movie. For a long time, there seems to be no real plot, just people going place to place and occasionally taking off their clothes. Then it turns into a weird story of people stuck on a desert island. I don't have a good idea what the point of this movie was supposed to be. It seems aimless, and there are things like the two pursuers of the title figure that are never explained. There is some nice Israeli scenery, but a good look only goes a little way in a movie
you need a good story and well-written characters as well, and this
movie simply doesn't have those two important things.
