    Does One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest count? At least the central character is very much of a rebel.

    What a film i remember watching that when i was young, the film of the young kid keifer just reminded me of going up to my mates parents and there friends in the late 70s early 80s as a toddler, and just going up there and the attitude generally of the our comunity then was just like pulling together,to help each other borrow and lend stuff almost like the whole comunity was a big family, i can just remember those happy times, my childhood mates hippy family clung to the roots of hippism, with the occasional flirts with the greedy 80s that hit everyone, including my mum and dad, but i guess my mates parents could afford to be hippies coming from a wealthy lineage family, but they chose to throw off there status and hippe out and moved to near where we lived and bought a little farm, up north cheap and sold there place down south i bet deer. but still had money thats the thing, my mum and dad ddint so kind of had to make money to buy there little farm, same ideals differant financial backgrounds, my dad struggled then the boom came then the bust, i can just remember as a kid working my nuts off on our farm while my mate got chance to paint be arty mountain bike etc, i aint condeming hippies far from it, i was jealous of my mates love and freedom he got and they all turned out good, they could talk to there parents about anything whereas mine where a bit more old fashioned, well i guess my dad was, my mum a bit highly strung (and nowadays a dm reader) kind of was a little bit hippy ish but i guess sold out years ago, as a lot did,

    Shame really it was like a war time sprit round us everyone helping each other to do well but there was no war beatiful eh.

    Ok sorry to hi jack the thread (again) just got me all nostalgic,

    Fav hippie films,

    Easy rider but it gets a bit dark,
    Flashback... once we get into the 90s were going to make the 80s look like the 50s,
    born on the fourth of july,, bear with me certain aspects near the end where the mans dissabled have strong hippie ideals, that did change my outlook on life war etc,
    there have a merry christmas and lets hope for a drier peaceful and appier new year.

    Steelyard Blues has to be in there. Donald Sutherland as a demolition derby driver trying to build an aircraft to go somewhere with lots of stock car racing and no jails. A classic.

    It certainly pushed the envelope with a topless Vanessa Redgrave. She was quite good looking then.

    Glad to see Head already listed.

    How about Made, with Carol White and Roy Harper?

    Magical Mystery Tour and Yellow Submarine ought to get a mention.

    I enjoyed Three Into Two Won't Go enough to go and see it a few times, although hippyish in a free-spirited kind of way it is not a happy film.

    Rock and Roll Circus, although the film of a rather special concert is rather evocative of the hippy vibe, which reminds me ... Girl On A Motorcycle?

    Not British or strictly speaking hippy, although very in tune with its time, how about The Graduate?

    If we can have Silent Running and Dark Star, what about Barbarella?

    Film versions of musicals - Godspell and Hair (with its extended opening sequence a real treat for fans of Twyla Tharpe's choreography - one of my favourite dance sequences in any film).

    Electra Glide In Blue

    Not sure if folks would class it as a 'Hippy' film, but I used to watch and re-watch 'Alice's Restaurant' when we shared a house 30 years ago. Our other over played vid was Woodstock - mainly as it was good background to get stoned too. But Alice's was my fav.

    Walk right in, it's around the back.............

    I have just watched Alice's Restaurant. Only baby boomers would understand it.

    The big Lebowski, which I watched quite recently. Not super hippy like, but the dude is funny.

    In a similar vein to The Big Lebowski, which I adore, Inherent Vice is a cracker. Joaquin Phoenix as a stoned Private Investigator with not a clue what's going on and Josh Brolin as a total nutjob cop. Brilliant.

    I've been watching a few 1960s films recently and wanted to see which films from that era that other people enjoy.

    I guess Easy Rider is the most obvious ones. But some of the same actors do some very similar films, one being Psych Out, another one The Trip, which was apparently banned for 36 years.

    I'm watching The Trip later on, but can definitely recommend Psych Out if you enjoyed Easy Rider.

    I also recently watched The Magic Trip, which was more of a documentary than a film, but it was mainly footage from the bus trip Ken Kesey and the Merry Pranksters took across America in 1964. It was absolutely awesome and I can't wait until I can watch it again.

    Although On The Road came out in 2012, it was based very much on the same scene, if not slightly earlier, and I also enjoyed that one a lot, even though it was not made then.

    So, what are your favourite hippie films? Can anyone recommend any similar films that focus more on the late 1960s British scene than the American one?

    I
    I loved the Magic Trip so much a I bought it.

    My favorite hippy movie is Dr. Strange Love, or how I learned to quit worrying and love the bomb.

    Another good hippy movie is CANDY with Ringo Star. There's a lot of big stars in that movie. You can watch it on youtube.
