Woodstock.

BTW, only just found out that 2 people out of half a million died at Woodstock. One from a drug OD, the other from falling asleep under a tractor and the driver not realising he was there.

Depends on what facet of "hippydom".
Free love?
Commune life?
Peace,love & flowerpower?
Drugs?
the music?

If it is the latter two then 60s/70s "hippy" films were uniformly dismal/disappointing.

Roger Corman (the horror guy) did a few of these with Jack Nicholson - The Trip however DOES have a half-decent soundtrack. (Which is rather surprizing since the main band is Electric Flag whose lps generally suck.)

Psych-Out ('68) is about hippy decadence and is uninteresting.

The Happening ('67?) with david Hemmings has a good soundtrack.

My fav would be "Candy". GREAT soundtrack and the movie moves at a quick pace and - unlike most hippy films of the period - does not take it seriously.

"Three In The Attic" is sorta hippy - where 3 women "sex" a young man to death. Excellent soundtrack by Chad & Jeremy.

Not sure you should class Easy Rider as a hippy film. Its a biker film. Hippies are not known for aggression. Or being rebels.

I guess seminally "hippy" is the brit film, "Work Is A Four Letter Word". David Warner as a longhair getting himself a nightshift job at a steamy factory just so as he can grow psychedelic mushrooms there. Good'un, but simple.


"Woodshock" made a few years ago was pretty good.

Hollywood doesn't know how to properly do "hippie".

Its always this multi-coloured ,pastel-paisley ,dumb, Laugh-In chick take. Or, on the other side of the coin - the rebel/Vietnam protest Abby Hoffman take alla Wild In The Streets, The Wild ones....

Rarely commune life.
