This is like some kind of dream I'd have after eating Thai food or something. The cemetary acid freak out scene was…. trippy ='.'=

So finally, I see both these classics.
Truly a great movie…

A little trivia:

- The weed they are smoking in the movie is real (as per interviews with both Dennis Hopper and Peter Fonda).
- The brunette in the cemetery trip scene (and with them at mardi gras) is Toni Basil - that's right… the one-hit-wonder "Hey Mickey you're so fine, you're so fine you blow my mind, Hey Mickey".
- Dennis Hopper directed the movie, while he and Peter Fonda (and one other guy) wrote it.

That movie always moves many emotions in me due to the fact that I had a somewhat similar young adulthood… along with the search for the "America" that they are looking for in the movie.

May all your hits be crits!
