(June 2011)


Directed/Written by: Alex Gibney and Alison Ellwood

Starring: Stanley Tucci, Ken Kesey, Neal Cassady, the Merry Band of Pranksters, Jack Kerouac and Allen Ginsberg


Using a colorful, freewheeling style, Magic Trip chronicles Ken Kesey's famously rambunctious cross-country road trip in 1964. Dismayed by the conformism of suburban, capitalistic America and by the violence up-ending the nation's cultural life (Vietnam, the Kennedy assassination, etc.), Kesey, the acclaimed novelist behind One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, and a crew of ragtag friends, including celebrated speed freak Neal Cassady, converted a ramshackle school bus into a multi-colored Pleasure Palace and took to the road. Their destination: the World's Fair in New York City.

Thanks for the info. I had seen a trailer for this one, and am glad I can see it for free on HDNet Movies.

Cool. I posted this even though I said I wouldn't do it again. I guess I will for the next one if I catch it in time. HDNet Movies always run them on a Wednesday so it's not that to find the "before it hits the theater" movies.

No dice! It was a SNEAK PREVIEW and was shown that night and that night only.


You may be able top pay for it on demand or in a theater.

Was all the material in the film from the cameras on the bus? some shots

looked as if they had been done recently. and the hd quality of some shots

made it appear to me they had been recently. too good of quality for early 60's 16mm film. Would be kind of weird if they did make new shots, as it

detracts from the authenticity of the flick.
