Synopsis by Clarke Fountain
Group therapy was all the rage in the late '60s and early '70s. Among the many documentaries about it, Here Comes Every Body is distinguished chiefly because it takes place at the legendary Esalen Institute. At these sessions, participants unburden themselves of their life histories and deep concerns by crying, getting nude, wrestling, and otherwise revealing the state of their inner lives.
