Movie Review by ManMachine
March 11th, 2018

A Psychedelic Let-Down

OK. Here's 1967's "The Trip" summed up 4 U in a total psychedelic nutshell. Totally.

A total square takes some LSD.... The total square hallucinates (like a total f-u-c-k).... The total square is now transformed into a total hipster.... (And, that is the total end of the total story)

Roll credits.

Now, I don't know about you - But, in the days of my reckless youth - I certainly did my fair share of dropping acid (LSD). And I'll tell you one thing for sure - I never, ever came even close to hallucinating like this dude did. Never.

You know, I really, really wonder (back in the glory days of "Flower Power") just how many gullible thrill-seekers saw this film, fell for its "say-yes-to-drugs" propaganda, tried some LSD, expected to be enlightened by some mind-altering experiences, and ended up being completely deflated and disillusioned by the promising hype of a psychedelia that never delivered.

P.S. - Wait till you see this film's unintentionally hilarious "laundromat" scene. It'll totally kill you.
