Magic Trip Trailer


Back in 1964, Author of classic novel 'One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest', Ken Kesey, set off on a famous road trip across the USA to the New York World's Fair. He was accompanied by what came to be known as 'The Merry Band of Pranksters', a rebellious group of truth-seekers, one of which was Neal Cassady, an icon celebrated in Kerouac's 'On the Road', and the man in charge of decorating and driving their transport - the Magic Bus.

One (2005) Review


Weak
Some say God is love. To others, religion is poison. But no thinking person manages to get through life without eventually grappling with the ultimate question of life, the universe, and everything. (The answer, by the way, is 42.) And so it was that two Midwestern dads suddenly found themselves wandering the globe in search of insights from some of the world's most notable spiritual minds, all for the benefit of a documentary film.

Ram Dass Fierce Grace Review


Weak
Ram Dass, born Richard Alpert, is a name associated with such New Age terms as "spiritual awareness" and "consciousness raising," though these phrases are far from groundbreaking. Having started on a leader's journey from taking LSD with Timothy Leary, which eventually led to cohesion with the Dalai Lama, Ram Dass now expands his healer's speech to the aging, based on his own experience with a recent stroke.

The power of his calm nature in his fight to return to normalcy is understandably comforting to the many who seek private counsel with him. They've lost loved ones, been through hardship, or simply question faith. He provides few specific answers, along with an aching need to communicate that he is still taking time to regain with a speech therapist.
