68½ - Movies, Manson & Me

Adult
Rated 4.00/5 based on 1 reviews
A mind-bending journey through the outer reaches of the late Sixties and Seventies: the drugs, the movies, the music, the murders. Equal parts autobiography, paean to 60s and 70s cinema, DIY guide for aspiring screen-writers, and inquiry into the nature of truth, fiction and memory, 68½ is a true genre-buster.

Jnana Hodson reviewed on July 27, 2019

Starting in Bristol, England, in the summer of '68, this son of a flower child runs through the seamier side of the counterculture explosion with wildly opinionated perspectives, especially on movies and their casts, many of them largely unknown. Sometimes, it's briskly and refreshingly iconoclastic, stirring gasps of shock or outrage. There's no escaping his uninhibited egotism. (Just what was he on when he wrote this? For some of us, it might produce a contact high.) He still delivers some brilliant, passionate, and highly unconventional insights on the era. No wonder we couldn't quite get our act collectively together.
