    Long Strange Trip

    ★★★½

    Maybe I'm wrong, but I feel like this is not a movie for hard-core Dead fans. As a person who would barely consider themself a fan of the Grateful Dead, but someone who is very interested in the hype and atmosphere surrounding them and affecting them (and rock bands in general), I got a lot out of this doc.

    If you're interested in the drug scene or hippie culture of the early-mid 60s, or stage production and touring or studio…

    Still don't love the car ride to Chicago and back - too slow and mean spirited - but everything else is top notch Coens... and Oscar Isaac.

    Still corny. Still ridiculous. Still preposterous. Still outrageous. And I love the shit out of it. Love the characters, love the locales, love all the "geeky tech" talk and love the style. Lorraine Bracco is the only thing that bugs in this movie.

    The montage with the spinning phone booths... aw yeah.
