Trivia

The Beat Culture was a lot about drugs. Even New York in itself at that time, with all the jazz musicians and poets, was characterized by heroin. I drank mainly but I took heroin to cope with the backstrokes, says Conrad Rooks in Pattaya, Thailand, in the year 2000. See more »

A hallucinogenic gem
22 June 2001 | by chinaskeeSee all my reviews

Conrad Rooks' hallucinogenic gem also boasts one of the most hypnotic film scores of all time by Ravi Shankar.Rooks knows his story,and although he tends to wander at times,he's always keeps the action moving on course.Russel Harwick's (Rooks) attempts to "escape" the rehab center are hilarious.This film probably captures the essence of the sixties counter-culture like few films ever have. Although you might be tempted not to see this trip all the way through,you will only be cheating yourself out of one of the greatest movie endings of all time.
