The hippies are alright.

Revolutionary in its day, this Broadway musical turned big-budget film, helmed by two-time Oscar winner Miloš Forman, features an incredibly-deep roster of songs.

John Savage and Treat Williams are two of my favorite character actors, and they nail it as, respectively, uptight farm boy Claude, and blissed-out tribal leader Berger.

One is headed to Vietnam, but gets waylaid by the sights and sounds of the big city.

Meanwhile, the other lives life like McConaughey before McConaughey, only to see things go tragically wrong.

An odd couple, to be sure, but a memorable duo.
