Smith isn't the most reliable narrator, but she weaves a great yarn, one that suggests a jaw-dropping conspiracy, sprinkled with cameos from Francis Ford Coppola, Keith Richards and Andy Warhol. It's a trip.

She's very charismatic and it's fun to hang out with her for awhile, even if I'm not sure what the stories add up to.

December 11, 2020 | Full Review…

A pretty entertaining history of counterculture and espionage... It is intriguing and humorous, [although] sometimes a little too rambling.

None of this is as interesting as the movie seems to think...

November 30, 2020 | Full Review…

Harcourt-Smith's narrative is at times a rambling one, with rehearsed flourishes that don't always land as they should.

November 29, 2020 | Full Review…

There's enough material here to fill an entire multi-part docu-series, but My Psychedelic Love Story is an intriguing and often-humorous look at these crazy events, anchored by Harcourt-Smith's presence.
