The most interesting aspect of this documentary is the people interviewed, both professionals and non-professionals. There's a remarkable film festival that is now in full swing with artists from all over the world. Some of the artists in attendance included Lars Ulrich, Bill Callahan, Oliver Stone, Lalo Schifrin, and the writer and director of the documentary, David Gelb. The first time I heard about the documentary was in mid-January, and it was only in retrospect that I realized what it was all about. At the time I had already read the book "The Power of Music" by Richard Linklater, and I was impressed with the film. But I was only slightly familiar with the personal life of Lenny Bruce, and I knew that it would be fascinating to see how his life and career progressed, and that was what this documentary was all about. It's a wonderful film, a history lesson, a love letter, and a tribute. It's a real gem. But, for me, the most interesting aspect of the film was that these people were actually trying to do something that they never even thought they could. I don't mean to say that they were actually doing anything that we've all dreamed about doing, but they did. They made it happen. And it was, for many of them, one of the most important things in their lives. I was curious to know how it was for them, so I asked a few people what it was like. As the interviews were finishing, it was clear that many of the people that had been interviewed were very upset and at a loss for words. Many were in tears. I hope that all of you will read this and decide for yourself whether it's worth your time. You can't take your eyes off this film. It's amazing. And it's a tribute to the people that helped make it happen. To them and to their families. To the people who are still trying to do what they never thought they could. You will never forget it.

For a documentary, it is quite an impressive one. There are some great images and interviews, and it is almost a documentary of the entire movement. I especially liked the interviews with its two lead leaders. Most of the critics I know who are not the fanatical organization members who hold it up to ridicule have been somewhat kind, but this film's critics deserve some of the blame. They like to portray the movement as a well-organized, violent, and ill-tempered bunch of wild-eyed lunatics, while these were actually quite calm, and actually some of the most moderate members were actually quite articulate. The people who say that the music was all about obscenity are completely wrong. The music was not so much a statement of obscenity, but was a statement of the people's attitude toward that and how they used music as a tool to express themselves. The film also demonstrates that there was actually a very nice sense of humor in the movement. We get some excellent interviews with the actual people who were involved, including a very telling interview with Robert Christgau, who was involved in the writing of the music and who ended up in jail for that. And it shows that it was actually an extremely clever movement and that it was a very diverse movement, with some of the most radical elements falling within it. The film also shows that even though it was not a movement, it was a movement in its own right. They are still alive, they still have a real political base, and they still have influence. And the movement really is a very real movement. And it was a movement that was very successful, even if it was not a very big movement in the U.S. It was a movement that was very successful, and it did not go away. But it did not disappear. I believe that this film could be useful in teaching the movement a lesson, and showing it what it really is, what it was really about, and what it was really for. It could also be useful in teaching the people of the movement about the real aims of the movement, and the real goals that it was really trying to achieve.

I'd heard a lot about this movie from friends and family, and wanted to watch it, even though I've never been to a festival. It was worth the wait! First, I'll say that I'm not a big hippie, but I am a big fan of the '60s music. My only experience with it is the Grateful Dead concert in my college dorm, but it's all been covered by the media. So I was excited to see this documentary, especially the interviews with the band members and other artists who were there. They gave their perspective, and let us know that they really were hippies. The story, as you'd expect, was tragic, and very personal. But it was a powerful story of a bunch of people trying to express themselves and make it work. I really enjoyed the interviews, and the clips from the concert, which are very powerful. I felt like I was there, in the middle of it all. The documentary was very well done, but I think the real artist of this story is the people themselves. They gave us a very honest and honest look into what the '60s were like, and how important it was to them. The fact that they didn't talk about drugs, sex, or any other things that would give the hippies any sympathy was very important. That said, I think the only thing I found really disappointing was that the interviews weren't really in chronological order. The stories were not tied together in a cohesive way. This would have made it easier for the viewer to understand what was going on, but then again, it's a documentary. I also think it would have been easier to follow if the interviews were in chronological order, but again, I'm not a hippie. I loved it, but I could have done without the spliced and jumbled footage. I still give it a 9, though. I'd definitely recommend this film to people, especially people who've never been to a hippie festival, or people who just want to see how important the music and hippies were to the people of the time.
