There’s something that strikes me whenever I watch this scene. Maybe it’s because I live in California, and visit San Francisco often. I wasn’t alive during the 60s, but I’m well aware of the amount of culture and change that went on during that time. Hunter S. Thompson’s description of then, as a great wave that eventually breaks, is really thought provoking to me. I came back to this clip recently because of everything going on in terms of politics. (I’ll be wary here). There’s no denying that we’re living in a time of great change, and there’s definitely a wave of something that’s being ridden today. The question is, when it will break? Will it break? I think I’m getting too personal, but that’s what movies are about, right? When I watch this movie(or read the novel), there’s a part of me, as a Californian, that can’t help but feel like I’m looking into a mirror of the past. I just wanted to share it with everyone.
