A nice history of absinthe, but I could do without the trippy camera effects that perpetuate the false hallucinatory reputation of the libation.

This was pretty interesting given all the mystery, folklore, and misinformation surrounding Absinthe. Also cause I tried it once in 2008 in New Orleans, and it was the most disgusting AND the most expensive drink I've ever had. It was so gross that I couldn't drink it, but it was so expensive that I couldn't bear throwing it away, so I got a "to-go" cup and gave it to someone on Bourbon St. Anyway, pretty interesting documentary!

Cool documentary that removed much of the mystery from absinthe...but not the allure...

A great short documentary. There are a lot of interviews in French that are subtitled in English, if that sort of thing bothers you. It gives a nice history through all of the myths and folklore right up to the recent legalization in Switzerland, the drink's origin, and the USA.

Watch it for free onlline.
