Revolution (1968)

Lopert Pictures
Directed by Jack O'Connell
My rating: 2.5 stars out of 4
IMDb Wikipedia

Candid look at San Francisco in the late 1960s, told from the point of view of the people who were living it. Our guide, so to speak, is "Today Malone", a young woman recently arrived to the scene from New Mexico. She sells papers on the street for 20 cents, claiming they are laced with LSD. She hangs out with her friends at the drug store, goes to concerts where she dances under psychedelic lights, takes LSD and smokes pot, and "makes love" with just about anyone who asks. The film includes plenty of music by Mother Earth, Steve Miller Band and Quicksilver Messenger Service. It is one of the better hippie films from the era.
