Absinthe: A Documentary

Sometimes, life surprises you in simple ways. While slogging through the mire of contemporary B-movie drivel and innumerable Hollywood cast-offs, I just stumbled upon this great little documentary about the ritual, history, and culture surrounding Absinthe, one of the most notorious hallucinogenic libations ever concocted by human hands. 

In addition to revealing a great deal of information on the subject, complete with interviews from contemporary absinthe makers in France, artists, and authors, the film contains a soundtrack featuring music by Thurston Moore, Matt Valentine, and Sun City Girls among others. 

If you've got time check it out! You can stream it directly from Netflix. Check the website and view the trailer above for more info.
