The Wackness

Watched a film calle "The Wackness" about a teenage marijuana dealer in New York City back in 1994. Though not the main character, Mary-Kate Olsen delivers an Oscar-deserving performance as a 'shroomin hot Deadhead hippie chick. Sir Ben Kingsley does a great job as a wacky psychiatrist too.

Just back from seeing Taking Woodstock, and am still slightly speechless. All caps necessary but I LOVED THIS FILM! Visually, the story, the characters, and especially the cinematography. Watch out for Wilma (Vilma) my FAVE character of all the film. I was not at Woodstock myself, and would be really curious about those opinions who actually were there-but heavy sigh of happiness on my part, and a giant grin!

went down to the mountain I was drinking some wine

I watched a movie yesterday called "Bottle Shock". It's based on a true story and set in California's Napa Valley in 1976. In one scene a winery owner was yelling at his hippie son saying "Don't you have any ambition in life?" The son replies "Yeah, to see the Dead at the Cow Palace".

Get prepared, there's gonna be a party tonight!

I Liked Mystery Train

I think my favorite scene was when Joe Strummer, sitting on at the end of the bed in the hotel, looks over his shoulder at the "Velvet Elvis" and he says something like, "Ah Jez, there that guy is again..." Strummer was the only guy in the universe that could deliver that line with the feel it gave me. Kudos!

OK...

"Mystery Train" is on top of my list. I had never even heard of this movie but the clip looks awesome and Steve Buscemi is a favorite.
