It's a half star (outta five) movie, actually, but amusing to watch for about 45 minutes or whenever that infinitely repeating folk song starts to gnaw at your sanity.

Oh, the irony: railing against machinery while eating out of tin cans. Deliberate irony, I believe. The movie starts off looking like a fabulous hippie trip but gradually begins to show the underlying hypocrisy and essential brutality of the characters when they meet with adversity. Not very subtle, obviously low budget, and sometimes very peculiar. But interesting for what it attempts.

I loved this movie! Reeks of the 70s with those cliché hippie one liners that make you smile. The weirdness of this movie attracts you and offers a different taste of what you are used to seeing. A definite must watch. Also the soundtrack in this movie is BEAUTIFUL and is what really draws you in.

critique de société, la peur de la technologie, ne pas vouloir faire partie du système, mais le tout avec une approche psychotronique et naive....lol...

Considered lost for a very long time, now thankfully returned to the world. An American Hippie in Israel is one of those films that is too hilariously outrageous to be true. Though its intentions are exaggeratedly satirical and its observations on the social culture of its times are clearly meant to be taken seriously, it is the film's numerous priceless moments of involountary humour that make Sefer's film such a cult classic must see. The story is about four youths who, out of disenchantment and boredom, set out to a deserted island to live the life of their dreams. Or at least that is what they think, as once they get there they become frustrated, angered and violent quite fast as they struggle to adapt to nature. Scattered scenes of free love and caricatures of characters complete the awful yet entertaining experience that is this film.

This movie is a masterpiece of "So bad it's good" up there with The Room or Troll 2. It is everything that was bad about 60's psychedelic road movies wrapped up in an extra layer of awful directing, a hilariously nonsensical plot and some of the worst acting in the history of cinema. An american Hippie in Israel is terrible in every sense of the word and yet so fascinating tat you want to see it again just as it's over. It is a masterpiece of crap, one that should be seen by every bad movie aficionado.

This is a masterpiece from the other side (the wrong side) of cinema. An example of how NOT to make a movie. So funny you wont believe your eyes.

This movie is a must SEE TO BELIEVE type of scenario.

Unintentionally hilarious masterpiece. Starts with a steamroller flattening flowers, then moves on to rotting corpses, then to an even more horrifying, stilted sex scene... The hits just keep on coming in this misguided attempt at exploitation/social commentary. Wild midnight screenings first Friday of every month in Tel Aviv, come if you're around!
