Playing April 21st at the Regent Square Theater
Dissecting a controversial social phenomenon, Corman directed The Trip, the first major studio film to deal with the effects of LSD. Scripted by Jack Nicholson, The Trip follows Paul Groves, a commercial director (Peter Fonda) experimenting with LSD to transcend his unfulfilling life. Among the highlights (groovy Electric Flag soundtrack, Dennis Hopper’s stoned dialogue, fantastic cinematography and editing) are the visual effects employed to graphically render Paul's hallucinations - a cinematic funhouse unfettered by the laws of narrative logic. Screened at the 1967 Cannes Film Festival, The Trip remains an incredibly vibrant document of 1960's counter-culture.
