This 1968 film from AIP has a certain reputation and a certain following.
But, today, in 2017, it is a highly improbable tale of a famous rock star (Christopher Jones) who suddenly realizes that he has political power and is thus able to help to lower the voting age to 14.
Then, he gets his LSD-addicted girlfriend (Diane Varsi) elected to the state legislature.
Finally realizing the extent of his influence, he runs for President and even gets elected.
Whereupon, he lowers the retirement age to 30 and puts "old people" in over-the-hill camps where they are forced to down LSD drinks to "keep them quiet".
It's very blunt and heavy-headed - and often an insult to one's sensibilities and intelligence.
It plays like a paranoid comic book - and maybe that was the intention.
I see it more in the vein of an attempt by AIP to capture the youth market and make millions.
If you worship Christopher Jones - and who doesn't? - his over-wrought performance in this film might be reason enough to see it.
Shouting "Give me the power!" to a rapt audience, he is the genuine article.
Shelley Winters, who plays Max Frost's mother, almost steals the film, though.
Especially when she is put into one of the "old-age" camps and subsequently goes beserk, having expected to get an ambassadorship from her son.
That's right, the President of the United States, who walked out on her and his father a long time ago.
