The Trip

The Trip ★★★

This resonated less in my second viewing. While it's not completely unrealistic in terms of how thoughts melt under the influence of acid, the Nicholson-Era Cormanism struck me as being more trendy than revelatory. The saving grace is one hundred percent Bruce Dern and his soft-toned guidance. Listening to him walk Peter Fonda through the stimulating curiosities of common household items cloaks my body like a warm blanket. A calming voice of reason, a voice I wish would walk me through life whilst completely sober. Talk to me, Bruce...
