Captures the Scope of the Sixties
16 October 2005 | by rvdaltonSee all my reviews

I really enjoyed the scope of this movie which not only captures the events and feelings of the sixties, but examines the fifties mentality which led to the sixties. It's also historically fascinating to realize that many centuries' sixties seemed to lead towards cataclysmic changes. This movie explores the many revolutions of the sixties and the sometimes impassioned comments from participants. I wish it were available in DVD format. Civil rights, sexual freedom, anti Viet Nam, political activism, LSD and drugs, counterculture, comedy, music, ecology all saw tremendous upheavals and reformations in the sixties. A great history lesson, but will we repeat it in a different form in 2066?
