Have a Good Trip: Netflix Takes You on an Adventure Into the Reality of Psychedelics
“Just say no.” This was the anthem of the War on Drugs movement of the 1980s. It quickly and quietly shut down research into psychedelics, and was largely propagated by misinformation. Have a Good Trip: Adventures in Psychedelics, a new Netflix documentary written and directed by Donick Cary, delves into the reality of psychedelics.
It features stories from comedians and celebrities about the respective psychedelic trips they’ve taken. This includes Sting, Sarah Silverman, Lewis Black, Anthony Bourdain, Carrie Fisher, Rosie Perez, A$ap Rocky, among an array of others.
What makes this film fascinating is the direction it fundamentally takes. Interwoven are testimonials that are brought to life with a multitude of animation styles. When I first saw the animation in Sting’s story, I wasn’t sure how I would feel about it. As the film progresses, however, I saw more of the different kinds of animation, and I came to really appreciate how it enhances the narrative.
