Dying to Know is an intimate portrait celebrating two very complex controversial characters in an epic friendship that shaped a generation. In the early 1960s Harvard psychology professors Timothy Leary and Richard Alpert began probing the edges of consciousness through their experiments with psychedelics. Leary became the LSD guru, asking us to think for ourselves, igniting a global counter-cultural movement and landing in prison after Nixon called him 'the most dangerous man in America'. Alpert journeyed to the East becoming Ram Dass, a spiritual teacher for an entire generation who continues in his 80s teaching service through compassion. With interviews spanning 50 years the film invites us into the future encouraging us to ponder questions about life, drugs & the biggest mystery of all: death.Written by
10/29/17. I thought this doc would be interesting to watch since I am a baby boomer. Sadly, I just found their conversations to be a bit out in left field, a couple of old hippies nostalgic about better days. Well, maybe their younger days rather than better days. The goals of the 60s were good ones - self-awareness, achieving a higher level of consciousness, love for fellow man, regardless of race or religion. Unfortunately, these lofty goals were mired by drugs and unprotected sex. Today, midway through the '10s, we are no closer to the goals of the '60s. People still use drugs to escape to only die from overdoses, and unprotected sex has resulted in a growing list of untreatable STDs. Maybe the better times are only those that exist in our minds.
