High There2014

  • 3.5
Hunter S. Thompson meets Barry McKenzie in this dark nonfiction comedy about a real-life, legendary but down-and-out tabloid television journalist who heads to Hawaii to film a marijuana travel series, only to become lost as he uncovers a secret government war to control the marijuana trade. The film touches on the controversial federal prosecution of marijuana advocate Roger Christie and his THC Ministry. Wayne Darwen has been cited as the inspiration for Robert Downey Jr.'s character Wayne Gale in Oliver Stone's film NATURAL BORN KILLERS and has been called the new Hunter S. Thompson.

Man, One of the most interesting filmy experiences I have ever seen! Truly an original master piece, an epic must see stoner trip. The big Hollywood studios are probably to afraid of making a real film like High There. Wayne Darwen aka Dave High is a natural born actor, such a Talent and that dude with the gas mask is crazy funny....Will their be a part deux???

Raw, real, experimental, important, and really really funny! They don’t make many like this any more!

Not genre, I know. Basically listing it for its psychotronic qualities, and (well established) cult status. I could try to make a case for genre, but frankly it is not even worth it. The one thing that surprises me is that this is actually a real movie. I don’t find it particularly funny, (actually I lie: I thought the kaopectate and street brawl scenes were good, charming and intense even,) or that there is actually a sense to it all, (it’s mostly plot-less but pot-filled) other than maybe illustrating some drug culture anecdotes which others may find familiar or where others might find something to identify with. A real trip for sure. Four Stars

Smokealicious!

And the Oscar for Best Comedy goes to High There. Well done.

Wayne Darwen is absolutely BRILLIANT!!! This film...UNFORGETTABLE!!

HIGH THERE! Can you say Pakalolo? I can Dave.

PakaloloPakaloloPakalolo and Pakalolo!

Brah, Dave is me hero, keep smokin' da medicine makes you feel good all over and

be a better soul of human, peace and love peoples.

My daughter and I laughed so much watching this movie. Fairy funny and i think -

i could be Dave's new Yuko.

I love pot a lot.

Okay-right from the start- i know this movie is not going to be everyone's cup of tea. Just look at the dvd cover and you know what you are getting!

This movie is typical Cheech and Chong humour. High is basically the womanizer who happens to smoke pot and bone everyone he can get. Jointz role is High's cameraman & interrogator. For my money he has most of the good lines and delivers them much smoother and can easily keep up with High's madness.

The wild backyard party scene could actually have been something you would have seen quite frequently back in the 60's - 70's and probably even today.

Watch this if you are a Cheech and Chong fan because it is a docu- comedy like no other ever filmed. I would of given it 5 stars if it had a more original looking dvd cover.

This was a very informative movie that gives a good perspective on the failed war on drugs. I also thought that the people that they interviewed for this film were very diverse in their views. Amazing film and very informational. I would strongly recommend this documentary to everyone!

I really loved this movie. It made me laugh with tears, it's so crazy... Dave High is insanely funny & self-deprecating. I saw this on Fandor and had to buy a few dvds for myself and friends. High is one-of-a-kind, there's no other cannabis expert quite like him. He's an Aussie Woody Allen but with a weird twist..."High There" is a movie that has to be seen, a true classic of old school film making and describing the plot doesn't really do it justice. A MUST SEE!

Aloha? Make that alo-hahaha. I loved this movie. Truly bizarre but off-the-wall funny. More twists and turns than Space Mountain.

High There gets five stars.

Not only is High There the best indie film I've ever seen, it's also the only one I've ever made. In fact, it's so good I'm already making another one, although I admit HT is a hard act to follow. HT is fun for the whole family. Watch it with the kids. They can explain it all to you. Recommended viewing. I've already watched it a hundred times.

I am still high from watching this flick. My friends are going to enjoy this comical documentary

movie gone nutz'O.

Where can I get some High There DvD's for Christmas gifts?
