“So you’re a C.I.A. plant?” Cutting to the chase! Showtime has unveiled a new official full trailer for Errol Morris’ latest documentary titled My Psychedelic Love Story, which is premiering at AFI Fest coming up this fall. We posted a teaser trailer for this doc earlier in the summer, before it had an official title, now it’s set to debut on Showtime in November. This documentary focuses, once again, on LSD and the “High Priest of LSD” Timothy Leary. And this isn’t the first time Morris has dabbled in LSD, as his Netflix series “Wormwood” is also about the CIA and psychedelics. The film is inspired by Harcourt-Smith’s memoir, “Tripping the Bardo with Timothy Leary: My Psychedelic Love Story“, and Morris interviews her to discuss her history with Leary before he became an informant for the FBI. “Devotion or selfishness? Perfect love or outright betrayal? Destiny or manipulation? Whatever the reason, the doomed relationship between Joanna and Timothy put the final nail in the coffin of the 1960s counterculture.” Damn this looks crazy fascinating.
