    Aahh! Liberals are totally insane, this movie proves it. As liberals cry "conspiracy theory" when we clearly have plenty of evidence to indict Hillary Clinton and her husband for a wide range of crimes, these idiots make a movie claiming that all the drug problems experienced by musicians is the fault of the CIA. One thing liberals are good at, deflection. Real Stinker, never even finished it.

As conservatives cry "conspiracy theory" when we clearly have no evidence to indict Hillary Clinton and her husband for any crime, these idiots make a movie claiming that all the drug problems experienced by musicians is the fault of the CIA.

  • Miserable liberal re-hashing of old details 2/2/2019 12:00:00 AM by umimelectric 2

    I love documentaries, basically on any topic. Even things that I think I know a lot about already, I will gladly watch a documentary about because I figure I'm open to learning something new. I really just gave this a shot because the other two reviews (at the time of this writing) are obviously fake reviews written by the same person under two different names so I wanted to give it a fair review here.

    Unfortunately, I can't really do that because I had to shut this miserable film off prematurely. It's just not done well. The narrator slogs along about the 60's drug scene, and the Beatles and Stones, etc and I sit here and think, 'man- doesn't everyone already know this stuff?' I mean when you feel so compelled to re-tell the story of the first time the Beatles took acid, that you borrow actual (dated, non-HD) footage of them discussing it straight from The Beatles Anthology, without adding anything new of your own...yikes. I wasn't alive in the 1960's, but like many people who weren't, I still know who Ken Kesey and The Merry Pranksters are. This documentary comes out in 2018 and acts as if it's breaking some new ground on anything here and I have to say it's just a collection of photos and videos they googled and spoke over. Finally, I have to mention how the production budget was so low, they seriously reuse the same annoying song throughout the film, which is played any time a photo of a drug party is displayed onscreen. They can't even play/use any of the music of the artists they are referring to, even though it's supposed to be a drug documentary about musicians. Awful.

    Just another film that has come out this year that's trying to get people to hate America and its Government. No matter what kind of propaganda is spewed by activists, America and its core values will always prevail.
