| If You Want to Know Ken Kesey, Don't Watch This Documentary
Ken tries for years to edit this film and make it work. He couldn't. And there's good reason: it's really not interesting or compelling. It's basically one tedious home movie.

And not a good one.

For all the talk of LSD trips and hte like, these people seem pretty normal. Kesey certainly was. After teh whole magic bus thing he led a very quiet family life in Oregon and taught at the university.

This documentary is very disappointing. It doesnt capture the times or the spirit.
