The Secret Life of Plants (1979)

The Secret Life of Plants (1979)

Directed by: Walon Green

Starring: Ruby Crystal, John Ashley Hamilton, Eartha Robinson

This is… certainly a strange film. It’s quite possibly the hippiest thing I’ve ever seen in my life, but it wasn’t completely bad.

This is basically a documentary about how plants are the best and people are the worst. Basically. On top of all the stop-motion plants growing quickly footage, you get a couple Stevie Wonder songs (including one he sings while in a robe walking through a jungle), the entirety of The Beatles’ “Here Comes the Sun”, and an interpretive dance sequence where some lady pretends to be a vine.

There’s some crazy nature photography in this movie, and that’s the really interesting part of it. All the goddamn hippie stuff with interpretive dance and Stevie Wonder’s song about George Washington Carver… that I could’ve passed on.
