Saint Misbehavin’: The Wavy Gravy Movie
Saint Misbehavin’ reveals the true story of cultural phenomenon Wavy Gravy – a man whose commitment to making the world a better place has never wavered. We experience the impact one person can have and connect to the hope that each one of us can make a difference while keeping our sense of humor.
Wavy Gravy is known as the MC of the Woodstock Festival, a hippie icon, clown, and even a Ben & Jerry’s ice cream flavor. In Saint Misbehavin’ we meet a true servant to humanity who carries his message through humor, compassion and a song he sings called “Basic Human Needs”.
Saint Misbehavin’ weaves together intimate verité footage, reflections from an array of cultural and counter-cultural peers, and never-before-seen archival footage to tell a story that is bigger than the man himself.
Saint Misbehavin’: The Wavy Gravy Movie is a story of a guy who was originally kind of a stand-up comedian, and then he became a protestor. He knew Lenny Bruce and Bob Dylan, and started the Hog Farm, which I really didn’t know about, but apparently the Hog Farm was the people who fed everybody at Woodstock. It’s really kind of a remarkable story of a man who’s now in his 70s who keeps saying can’t we all just get along. He’s kind of an unrepentant hippie. He’s a pleasure to watch, and he really does make you believe that somehow the world can be a better place, and he’s going to figure out the way to do it, and show everybody how to do it. So, three and a half stars.
