“Back to School”

“A cultural touchstone seen by nearly everyone my age when we were kids. It’s the movie that taught us to fear psychedelics as much as heroin, coke, pot, etc. and in the process taught us that adults like the ones who made the film knew less about drugs than we did. Yet Alice still works, and the performance from Jamie Smith-Jackson is spellbinding… The film is deliberately trying to upset and confuse us while making the crimes depicted impossible to duplicate, scrambling the details to an almost surreal David Lynch-esque degree (Lynch’s idea of the dark sex-and-drugs underbelly of Twin Peaks, for example, has a similar after school special-run-amok lack of logic).”
Erich Kuersten, Acidemic
