Mondo Mod (1967)

Boxoffice International Pictures
Directed by Peter Perry
My rating: 2 stars out of 4
(DVD, Something Weird Video)

Amusing documentary of the "mod", or hippie, movement in California circa the late 60s, narrated by LA radio personality "Humble Harve Miller". What would become an important counter cultural revolution is here presented as a fashion fad. Favorite activities include surfing, to which much time is dedicated, riding motorcycles of all kinds, dancing in nightclubs, karate, and of course those two mainstays of sex and drugs. No opportunity is wasted to show girls in various stages of undress. Might be fun if you are in the appropriate state of mind, otherwise tedious.
