Trivia

It would have been impossible for McLean to condense all of Ghinsberg's trials into one movie, which unfortunately left out:
  • When Ghinsberg woke up covered in leeches.
  • When Ghinsberg slipped down a slope and impaled his rectum on a broken stick.
  • When Ghinsberg woke up to find a swarm of termites eating patches of his skin where he'd urinated on himself.
