This movie is worth watching for the 1960s fashions alone. A chronicle of the brief period in Western popular culture when bourgeois sexual mores were put to the torch, BOB & CAROL & TED & ALICE (1969) appropriately begins with an encounter group at Esalen Institute. The Mazursky-Tucker screenplay is brilliant, particularly the conclusion, which is not what you expect, a sort of music video set to Jackie DeShannon's version of the Burt Bacharach and Hal David classic, "What the World Needs Now is Love." And the performances are fantastic -- a young, pre-debauched Eliot Gould and Dyan Cannon; Natalie Wood; and last but not least Bob Culp.
