Best Drama Movies of 1966



6.5/10 IMDB

Semi-autobiographical story of Conrad Rooks, who travels to France to undergo a drug-withdrawal cure. Flashbacks to the beginings of psychedelia in San Fran.

Starring: Jean-Louis Barrault, Conrad Rooks, William S. Burroughs, Allen Ginsberg, Paula Pritchett, Ravi Shankar, Ornette Coleman, Swami Satchidananda, Moondog, Penny Brown ..
