    Usually when a film is innately counterculture, it tries to at least appeal to that sort of audience.

    Exquisitely captures the irony and hopefulness of the era.

    A wonderfully complex examination of sexual and material politics that's full of bravely provocative, gently funny, and warmly human encounters.
