Ви говорит, что Терри Гильям снял этот фильм исключительно для того, чтобы вставить в конце эту фразу: 

That was the fatal flaw in Tim Leary's trip. He crashed around America, selling "consciousness expansion" without ever giving a thought to the grim meat-hook realities that were lying in wait... for all those people who took him seriously. All those pathetically eager acid freaks... who thought they could buy peace and understanding for three bucks a hit. But their loss and failure is ours too. What Leary took down with him was the central illusion of a whole lifestyle that he helped create. A generation of permanent cripples, failed seekers, who never understood the essential old-mystic fallacy of the acid culture: the desperate assumption that somebody or at least some force is tending the light at the end of the tunnel.

I've never heard of that being Gilliam's goal, but I do agree with the statement in general. SF is full of burned-out hippies!
