Film poster for The Trip (1967)
The "best" trip movie is also the best known: Roger Corman's classic The Trip. Written by Jack Nicholson and starring Peter Fonda, Bruce Dern, and Dennis Hopper (acidheads all), The Trip chronicled the adventures of a young director of TV commercials who, feeling that his life has no meaning, takes a hefty dose of LSD and spends the rest of the film hallucinating his brain away. Corman, to better understand the subject, actually took acid before making the film. Along with 2001: A Space Odyssey, The Trip became required viewing for anyone into LSD. -- Jim Morton

Summer of love

The Summer of Love was a phrase given to the summer of 1967 to try to describe (personify) the feeling of being in San Francisco that summer, when the hippie movement came to full fruition.

The actual beginning of this "Summer" can be attributed to the "Human Be-In" that took place in Golden Gate Park on January 14 of that year. Timothy Leary, Allen Ginsberg, and the Jefferson Airplane all participated in the event, a celebration of hippie culture and values. Later that summer, thousands of young people from around the nation flocked to the Haight-Ashbury district of the city to join in on the hippie experience.

Also the phrase given to the late 1980s in England when acid house and detroit techno hit the Atlantic shores and transformed a nation. America celibrates its "Summer of Love" --http://www.wikipedia.org/wiki/Summer_of_Love

Detroit uprisings

[...] After the riots of June 1967, Detroit went, as Ze'ev Chafets writes in Devil's Night, "in one generation from a wealthy white industrial giant to a poverty- stricken black metropolis." Starved of resources while the wealth remains in rich, white suburbs, the inner city has, largely, been left to rot.
