Sex, Drugs & Taxation
Christoffer Boe, 2013
Maybe the best thing to come out of Scandinavia during the hippie years was, in fact, the story of a radical libertarian and a hedonist capitalist.
Their friendship, forged by being outsiders in a conformist country, took them through years of adulation and success, with slight detours into the welcoming arms of vilification and imprisonment.
A joyride through taxation, mass travel, hookers and politics.
