Did You Know?

Goofs

It is mentioned in the narration that Anton LaVey (founder of the "Church of Satan") was cast as the devil in Roman Polanski's "Rosemary's Baby". This is an urban legend and absolutely false. He had no involvement in the film at all. See more »

For Accuracy, Skip This Garbage
16 June 2010 | by gratefulnjSee all my reviews

Simply said, a very bad documentary loaded with mistakes. It seems to be propaganda against the hippie movement. I thought Peter Coyote would have thought better than to add to this garbage. I say that because I like the guy. It forgot to mention had the hippie movement not happened, and had LSD not been discovered the same year as atomic fission, the world would have destroyed itself. Where's the balance in this film? There is none. Skip it if you want a more accurate picture. There are better films. Since the History Channel showed a very well written documentary on LSD to Peyote, I really thought this would have been represented better. Try again History Channel. The only good part of Hippies was watching the commercials for Ice Road Truckers.
