There are a wide range of versions that exist for this film. The DVD from Rhino Video claims that the film runs 137 minutes, although the running time comes to 125 minutes. The 125-minute version is the only one with the length open black-screen monologue. The 108-minute version is the version shown to theater audiences in 1972. There is a 74-minute version, and the grand majority of this version consists of just the Jimi Hendrix concert footage with only a few scenes involving the commune remaining. See more »
An accurate portrayal of the lifestyle of the 60's hippie movement spearheaded by people like Jimmy Hendrix
Well....Do you love Jimmy, 60'S, and hippies? Then yes! Rent me!I joined a nudist vegetarian commune after watching this. I was born in the 70's and got robbed. I could not go see Jimmy Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Led Zeppelin...This gave me a spiritual taste of what the "movement" was really about. I also got to see the real Rainbow Bridge in Hawaii. I feel films like this are necessary to show the people younger than us what is was about also. I believe the Utopian like atmosphere that they were trying to create was ideal, however clouded by the overuse of the drugs. I often think to myself, besides Jimmy, are any of those people alive? They were into some heavy partying.
