Don't forget the great soundtrack by the Standells and the Chocolate Watchband.

There was an in-depth interview with Farmer in a recent Video Watchdog, where she talks about the transition from Hollywood starlet to European film icon. Worth seeking out.

swac, thanks for the props for the Mimsy interview ... it was certainly a dream come true for me to get the chance to do such a comprehensive interview with my all-time favorite actress. Thanks swac, and thanks Mimsy!

Why does everyone keep saying it is a acid 'freak out' or a bad trip?

She was the only one in the room doing yoga-dance-acrobatics, a far cry from a freak out.

Amazing sequence though - one of the best parts of any AI movie.
If I ever have a daughter I'm naming her Mimsy.
