Psych-Out (1968)
Tune in. Turn on. Psych out! Take the ultimate in psychedelic trips with Susan Strasberg, Dean Stockwell, Jack Nicholson and Bruce Dern! When a deaf runaway (Strasberg) visits swinging San Francisco in search of her brother, she teams with the aptly named Stoney (Nicholson) and his out of sight hippie band “Mumblin’ Jim.” But the more she succumbs to that music – and danger-filled Flower Power scene…the more she realizes that reality is a rotten place to be!

When I first read the synopsis for Psych-Out, I expected it to be incredibly stupid, but once I watched it I decided otherwise. This film provides a rare look into a time too offen reduced to nostalgic simplicities. A true time capsule, watch and see. NOTE: It is quite embarrassing when Nicholson is miming (on guitar) a bastardized version of Purple Haze, but the scene is enjoyable nonetheless. Great music by Strawberry Alarm Clock and The Seeds (both bands perform live in the film). The STP sequences are fun to watch. Another part is where Elwoood (Max Julian)fights a bunch of garbage gargoyles in a local dump, but since he ate a hit of acid, he sees them as knights and dragons. Bruce Dern plays a good role in this film as ‘The Seeker’ who is being looked for by his sister Jenny (Susan Strasberg). Dave (Dean Stockwell) is an acid freak and his role is equally effective. But the main treat is seeing Jack Nicholson (as Stoney) with long hair saying ‘out of sight’ and crashing around in a van with his psychedelic band, Mumblin’ Jim. Although not for everyone, this film can be incredibly enjoyable.
