"One long tirade of psychedelic mysticism with surreal glimpses of the war, epitomized as a young soldier who can now only relax while smoking marijuana and as 'an old saintly white beard tortured to death in a / rice paddy.' The war is analogized as 'stairways of horrible facts... the Tomb of America'" - Newman.
