Government Funded 60's Propaganda?
20 April 2010 | by See all my reviews

That's really what this film feels like, complete with evil stoner teenagers and some seriously cringe worthy "high" scenes, where the kids run around screaming or doing various things that no one in their right mind would think of doing while stoned (including binding peoples arms and feet and dropping them in a lake. What.) Perhaps Dexter and Gautier live in some kind of alternate reality where cannabis is actually a potent mix of crack cocaine and PCP.

It's a film that anyone who has smoked cannabis would laugh heartily at, but it seems quite frightening that people once seriously believed that marijuana is as dangerous as it is depicted in this film. It's an obvious step back from Reefer Madness, but every scene that includes marijuana is childishly naive and always completely unrealistic in terms of the drugs' effects. The untruthfulness of the entire film, the plot, script and numerous factual errors really detracts from the performance of the seemingly talented cast- but it simply is not possible to take the acting seriously when placed in such an outrageous context.

Brainwashing material for 60's youth is my call- it didn't work I suppose.
