Movie Info

Archetypal 1960s musician Max Frost (Christopher Jones) lends his backing to a Senate candidate who wants to give 18-year-olds the right to vote, but he takes things a step further than expected. Inspired by their hero's words, Max's fans pressure their leaders into extending the vote to citizens as young as 15. Max and his followers capitalize on their might by bringing new issues to the fore, but, drunk on power, they soon take generational warfare to terrible extremes.

Critic Reviews for Wild in the Streets

All Critics (19) | Top Critics (6) | Fresh (12) | Rotten (7)

  • It's a dark, dark comment on 1968 youth culture, not always elegant to watch but unusual for its time.

    June 4, 2014 | Full Review…
  • Wild in the Streets is a kind of instant classic, a revved-up La Chinoise or Privilege for the drive-ins in summertime.

    June 4, 2014 | Full Review…
  • Despite its rough edges and airy trimmings, the film has a chilling nub of possibility to it.

    June 4, 2014
  • An often chilling political science fiction drama, with comedy, the production considers the takeover of American government by the preponderant younger population.

    June 4, 2014 | Full Review…
  • For this audience, Wild in the Streets needs no serious political comment and no real understanding of how pop music and the mass media work together. It's a silly film, but it does communicate in the simplest, most direct terms.

    June 4, 2014 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • Shelley Winters, as George's mother, gives the most tasteless performance of her career, while Barry Shear directs as if he'd seen Dr. Strangelove a few too many times.
