Interview: Justin Long On His Trippy New Movie ‘The Wave’
When you take drugs, where do the drugs take you?
That question is at the center of many drug movies, from Harold and Kumar to Easy Rider (this could also explain the episodic, roaming structure of drug movies as well). The new Justin Long movie The Wave — in which Long plays an ambitious lawyer who inadvertently ends up on an epic psychedelic journey — certainly falls into this category. However, the movie is also suffused with subtle social commentary and a dash of sci-fi fantasy. It’s a trip, in the broadest sense of the word.
