This documentary chooses to not offer a balanced representation of thevery many persons who were effected by this drug cult.
By drug cult I mean a group under the sway of a charismatic drug ratherthan the usual idea of a cult as under the sway of a charismaticindividual.
When we misrepresent a cult in ways such as done by this flick then weopen the doors to hucksters whom can take advantage of persons of weakcharacter.
The persons depicted in this film were not such hucksters, I think, butseeing the light does not inherently qualify one to blind people withit. Hopefully this flick will be seen through as a cautionary tale, butit's so out of balance and consequently un- intriguing that it isunlikely to be seen by more than a tiny handful.

This was probably one of the most disappointing doc/movies I'be seen inyears. Shallow puff piece was the only description that came to me as Iwas watching this movie.
Everything was wonderful, Everything was perfect. We were so special.Everyone wanted to be us. Its so sad that the everyone can't be as colas us, Except for the part where someone dies.
I've know this story for years and knew quite a few of people who wereinvolved and I was really excited to see the movie or at leastsomething that was the least bit entertaining. Sadly the movie did onething right, it showed the how completely self involved egotisticalthese people still are.
FYI, the director was obviously in awe of this group/story becauseinstead of making balance movie he let them dictate to him. SODISAPPOINTED!!!!! If you insisted on seeing it don't spend a dime onit.
Orange Sunshine is the never-before-told story of the Brotherhood of Eternal Love - a spiritual group of surfers and hippies in California, which became the largest suppliers of LSD during the 60's and 70's. This feature-length doc follows their rise to star-status in Psychedelic movement and the "bad trip" that followed.
