Psych-Out


Dir: Richard Rush
Star: Susan Strasberg, Dean Stockwell, Jack Nicholson, Bruce Dern

[5] Groovy, man! Nicholson playing bass guitar and Strasberg as a deaf girl looking for her brother, a drugged out hippy character called Steve Davis (any resemblance...), in the San Francisco of 1968. Lots of dippy slang like "It's all one big plastic hassle", hideously dated as you'd expect - great fun nonetheless, thanks to a sense of humour. It even made me feel nostalgic for the 60's; which isn't bad since I was aged three when they ended!

8/10


Party like it's 1969
