Timothy Leary's Last Trip

1996 NR

Diagnosed with terminal cancer in 1995, 1960s counterculture icon Timothy Leary chose to create a web site to document his personal journey as he prepared for death. This documentary explores that part of Leary's story, as well as his earlier days as a Harvard professor and proponent of the use of psychedelic drugs to expand one's mind. Leary himself is featured, as well as his counterculture pal Ken Kesey and Grateful Dead groupie Wavy Gravy.
