Does the word "far-out" mean "great" or "fantastic"??
For example,
That's a far-out movie.
Does it mean "That's a good movie." ?

Or, does "far-out" sometimes mean "strange" or something like that?
I can understand this word is often used with positive comments, but it's not clear to me.
Could you help me with this word?
With some examples, please!!

Thanks for your help in advance.

It means strange.

e.g. Fantasies, dreams cannot harm you no matter how far out they are.
Thanks Maj, I got it.
It generally means strange.
I know it's often up to the context, but sometimes very confusing for me.

Far-out has two different meaning...though one could argue they are related.

Example:
a)Do you think people can actually live on Mars?
b)Hmmm, I don't know, but it sure is a far-out idea.

2. excellent, cool (slang)
Example:
a)Check out my brand new car. It's a hybrid. It runs on gas and electricity and gives me a great mileage.
b)Wow, that's far-out man!
Dear friends,

I have not heard «far out» for many years. It reminds me perhaps of my youth.

Thank you. Emotion: smile
