Following on from my Bondsploitation post, I now present a collection of trailers from hippie-themed movies. First up is a total winner:
An American Hippie In Israel (Amos Sefer, 1972)
(Also available as a high quality 179mb .mov here)
More (Barbet Schroeder, 1969)
“The” Pink Floyd provided the soundtracks to two counter-cultural Barbet Schroeder films: this and La Vallée (1972; released on LP as Obscured By Clouds). More was shot on the island of Ibiza in the days before it became an overdeveloped tourist destination. Back when it was, like, pure, man. So anyone for LSD, sun-worship, and Mimsy Farmer?
Pink Floyd were pretty ubiquitous in the apocalyptic hippie movie soundtrack field. Listen here to Roger Waters’ trademark bloodcurdler:
Zabriskie Point (Michelangelo Antonioni, 1970)
And while we’re at it, something more honestly exploitative…
Psych-Out (Richard Rush, 1968)
These are the PLEASURE LOVERS! They’ll ask for a dime with hungry eyes…but they’ll give you love – for NOTHING!
Starring Jack Nicholson and Susan Strasberg.
Peace and love.
