Ozus' World Movie Reviews

It's worth checking out for the marvelous look back at how the counterculture dropouts related to each other and to the straight older generation in the late 1960s.

[Penn] has transformed a charming shaggy-dog story into a melancholy epitaph for an entire era.

TV Guide's Movie Guide

To his credit, Penn refused to romanticize his subjects, and the film stands as a fairly accurate chronicle of the times.

Penn's genius overtakes the dropout romance, like a final post-bacchanal hangover that suggests liberation as an El Dorado dream.

Emanuel Levy

Inspired by Guthrie's ballad, Arthur Penn's film is a summation of the anti-establishment, anti-Vietnam War generation, clinging to the ideal of a collectivist life in a Stockbridge commune.

...the film itself remains a pleasant, oddball, and highly diverting glimpse into one of the country's most confusing times.

| Original Score: 7/10

January 1, 2000


Penn's strong sympathy with the outsider and anti-Establishment stance comes across in a film that appealed to those who could identify with this communal hippie haven, but now seems too naive and distant.

There are occasional flashes of wry humor and some rib-tickling sequences. But they are all too few.

Not nearly as good as everyone keeps telling you that it is.

The movie hasn't improved any over the years, but fortunately this version has Arlo Guthrie supplying commentary, making the DVD worth some historical value for '60s junkies.

Dan Jardine
Apollo Guide

In the end, the slap-dash narrative loses focus and credulity, particularly when the tale turns to the disintegrating relationship of Alice and Ray, and to an ill-developed subplot involving the ex-con drug addict Shelly.
