Audience Reviews for Psych-Out
This is an excellent psychedelic drama movie, it's very exciting, and it has a great cast. It's a great movie, and I highly recommend it.
Above average drama about San Franscico hippie life seen through the eyes of deaf Susan Strasberg, who arrives looking for her missing brother. Producer Dick Clark, yes of American Bandstand fame and numerous New Years Eve broadcasts, produced this pseudo-hippy flick. How was he ever to know what a anti-establishment person was? Yet, he made this film about them. Dick Clark was the ultimate ESTABLISHMENT figure during the Sixties and beyond. Please, give us a break. Adventures depict the world of a lost band experimenting with drugs and the supporting cast is pretty good all the way around. Jack Nicholson makes an appearance in this film too. Flawed by melodramatic ending but still good. Worth watching once, if nothing else but for the retro clothing. Starring: Susan Strasberg, Dean Stockwell, Jack Nicholson, Bruce Dern, Adam Roarke, Max Julien, Bob Kelljan, Henry Jaglom, Barbara London, Tommy Flanders, The Strawberry Alarm Clock, Gary Marshall, Ken Scott, Linda Scott, John 'Bud' Cardos, Gary Kent, Dave Morick, I.J. Jefferson, Beatriz Monteil Director: Richard Rush Producer: Dick Clark Note-worthy, Clark was of American Bandstand, host.
how can you not love this? a spaced-out trip filmed on location by laszlo kovacs during the height of the haight-ashbury scene in full psychedelic color, starring a young ponytailed, bass-playing Jack Nicholson, Bruce Dern, Susan Strasberg and Dean Stockwell, all produced by Dick Clark himself, and the music! Once again, Jack Nicholson shows off his flair for perfectly capturing the essence of modern culture on film. Experience the true hippie scene as the wildness it truly was.
