Jamie invites a stranger to join a road trip to Chile. The woman’s free and esoteric nature clashes with Jamie’s acidic, self-absorbed personality as they head into the desert for a Mescaline-fueled psychedelic trip.

Any movie in which Michael Cera uses the term "phenomenology," however fatuously, is alright by me. Especially if that movie also leaves one wondering if the protagonist ever got around to wiping his ass.
Far more enjoyable that Magic Magic, Silva has created a clever, subtle, black-humoured look at ego and the masks we all hide behind. Michael Cera puts in a great performance as a self absorbed man on a mission in this roadtrip pilgrimage to the coast in an attempt to take the cactus drug San Pedro. Some nice improv and a fresh take on the drug state make this essential existentialist viewing. 3.5 stars
While the film's ending is peculiar, this witty road movie about a young hippie woman - the crystal fairy - and the four men she travels with to experience the hallucinogenic effects of the San Pedro cactus is extremely endearing and truthful. Not a single frame made me uninterested, and the trademark humor yet genuinely humane performance of Michael Cera made this picture enjoyable. Good for a few laughs, surely.
Un film light mais tellement humain. On suit un groupe plutôt éclectique qui sont en pèlerinage, mais chacun à leur façon. Tout semble tellement naturel comme si on vivait l'aventure avec eux. 4,5 juste pour dire que c'est pas un 5
