one of the top ten movies I've ever seen
30 December 2006 | by See all my reviews

I just have to post a response to the one who dissed this movie, as it is one of the best I've ever seen; so good, in fact, that I am frustrated at my inability to ever see it again, much less show it to anyone else. And to Tommy Chong, my best regards go out. You made a good film.

It's the small details that count, -yes, you have to look for them, and they make all the difference.

For example, I like the part where Dawn Rae Chong is taking the visitor/intervewer, up to Chong's mountain retreat, while to kill time plays a demo tape in the car of her dad's upcoming album, -all seemingly '70's guitar riffs of the BTO era. While most of us slowly let that era pass, only to be replaced by worse tripe, Chong never let it go, so much so, that the movie has influenced me to also continue in music, despite what others may feel.

I think the movie instilled in me the belief that what I AM is most paramount, and to never, ever, let that go, despite what may be. The theme of 'Far out Man', is to 'hang on to your dreams'. Then, maybe, just maybe, your dreams will hang on to you, eg., like in the movie where his old lady and son find him again.

The reviewer mistakenly says Chong was, 'searching for his family'? NO WAY. His family was searching for him, and only after also finding themselves after 15 years, finding him by accident. Chong did nothing more than just keep being himself throughout, and carrying on, despite them leaving him. Chong just being himself made it all the more easier for them to find him again. Strong message, and important for these times.
