Editorial Reviews

Peter Hadley, an uptight and disillusioned medical student is failed by one of his professors, who happens to be his father. Seeking some escape, Peter ends up in bed with a nightclub singer named Bogart, who invites him on a road trip to Humboldt County. It is here that he meets and is embraced by Bogart s eccentric marijuana farming family. When Bogart leaves Peter stranded, he begins a new journey of his own.

Customer Reviews

Believable characters and plot, well acted and gripping - very enjoyable overall.
George H. Weber
Bogdanovich appeared without effort, and his longest scene is at the end as he eats a sandwich (no dialogue) for 6 minutes.
Steve Kuehl
I'm from that area so I may be bias but that aside it was a moving and touching character study!

Honestly - I bought this movie without really reading the reviews - I just made sure it had plenty of good scenes showing northern california and I bought it. I spent a couple of years attending Humboldt State University - I ran on the track team - rode my mountain bike in the forest, and made some friends. I didn't smoke or wear flowery girlie shirts. I didn't run away to Moonstone beach to "find myself." I debated the NORML people on campus and got into plenty of arguments with the hippies from Los Angeles.

I gotta say - I loved this movie. This movie did not go "where I thought it was going to go." This movie was not a pro-marijuana advertisement, nor was it an anti-drug propaganda. This movie really showed both sides of the debate for the legalization of marijuana - but, moreover, this movie showed how "other people" live in our country. How escaping accepted society can open your eyes - how staying true to who you are is really the best drug.

This film falls into my category of "thank god a rich hollywood producer didn't make this film" category. You know, like the movies coming out of mexico and spain - and now of-course slumdog. These are the types of movies that have high paid actors and hollywood producers scared. They gotta be getting scared because these movies are, in my humble(d) opinion, far better than the sewage coming out of hollywood.

Get the movie - you'll like it.

On the surface, Humboldt County is about a nerdish young medical student brushing up against marijuana farmers; but it's really a coming of age story in many ways. It's also a rather moving story. The acting is superlative and the cinematography couldn't have been better. The choreography for chase scenes is very well done; and the plot moves along at a good pace although perhaps just a few minutes could have been cut from the first hour or so of the movie.

When the action starts, we meet a young medical student, Peter Hadley, who is taking a final exam to pass medical school and get into a top notch medical residency program. Unfortunately Peter's professor--who is also his father--fails him because Peter prescribes the wrong medicine and treatment for the make-believe patient. Just before she leaves, the make-believe patient hands Peter a flyer about her jazz performance that night. Peter spends the night in the jazz club trying to feel better and he also has some romantic time alone with Bogart.

The next morning, Peter decides to go to Bogart's home with her even though he's way too sleepy to even ask where "home" is. As it turns out, her home is in Humboldt County in Northern California where many people grow and even farm marijuana. Peter is at first shocked and almost mortified by the whole thing--and things only get worse for Peter when he learns that Bogart has left the house where several people live and nobody knows when she'll return.

At first Peter is desperate to return to Los Angeles, but over time Peter learns to have increasing respect and compassion for these marijuana farmers who live off the land, respect each other and, in their own ways, love each other as one big extended family.

Being a stoner my self, I did not know what this movie was about. This movie takes a different look at those people who smoke pot. Its shows they're really just normal people like every one else. Not sure what else to say really but, its got a good message i guess and it touches the heart. Deff. a good flick. Check it out fo sho

This movie was a complete waste of time. Terrible acting, not funny at all, and the plot was absolute trash.

Format: DVD
Peter fails out of medical school. His dad is the one who actually fails him.

Peter is a pathetic loner, wall flower, very straight type of guy. He meets jazz singer, Bogart (as in don't bogart that joint my friend) played by Fairuza Balk. She seduces Peter rather quickly and they end up going back to her secluded home, which was about a day's drive away. Here Bogart meets her boyfriend, Max, as well as a large extended family.

They grow pot for a living. Peter is like a fish out of water and wants to leave, but has no transportation. After Peter spends the night, Bogart leaves the movie never to return. Peter, living with strangers, eventually tries the pot and adopts his new family as they get stoned and talk about how to run a colony on Mars.

Brad Dourif gives us the best performance as the ex-professor now pot grower. This is not a stoner movie, but a movie about people getting stoned.

If you enjoy dysfunctional families, lots of foul language and a depiction of most people of Humboldt county as totally whacked out druggies, this video is for you. Had little to recommend for any reason.

2 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Grady Harp HALL OF FAMETOP 100 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on December 22, 2011
Format: Amazon Instant Video
HUMBOLDT COUNTY is a taste f the 60s and 70s drug culture when many disillusioned people, young and old, picked up and moved to the scenic wonder - and pot farms - of Humboldt County, California. Darren Grodsky and Danny Jacobs co-wrote and co-directed this little throw back in history and the result is a bit of nostalgia and some fine characterizations by a solid cast.

Jerry Hadley (Jeremy Strong) is a medical student trumped by his medical school professor father (Peter Bogdanovich) into failing medical school, and the only apparent way for the fairly clueless and disillusioned Jerry is to try the world outside. He begins with a strange relationship with Bogart (Fairuza Balk) and ends up headed to Humboldt County where he encounters folks living off the profits (both mentally and economically) of growing marijuana. He becomes friends with the free spirits Max (Chris Messina), Rosie (Frances Conroy), Jack (Brad Dourif) and in the midst of the atmosphere, Jerry 'inhales' and begins to figure out where his life should actually be headed.

The movie seems to be a bit of fluff, but written into the lines is a lot of wise philosophy - if you choose to take it that way. Good performances and a clever script make the movie a nice diversion. Grady Harp, December 11
