Not to be confused with the Italian sexploitation film of the same name, Étienne Sauret‘s film profiles the scientist who discovered and then popularized the effects of ecstasy and other psychedelic drugs. Dr. Alexander Shulgin, as you might expect, is revered by many and hated by others. Let’s hope the film is longer on interviews with the scientist than it is with imagery of gurning ravers. Screening at the 2010 SXSW Film Festival.
