HEAD (1968 U.S.) D/W/P: BOB RAFAELSON W/P: JACK NICHOLON W: THE MONKEES
Fuck YELLOW SUBMARINE, this is more like it. The Monkees (Peter Tork, Mickey Dolenz, Davy Jones and Michael Nesmith) star in their own plotless psychedelic counter-culture classic that negates the previous light MONKEES tv series and must have confused the hell out of the group`s young teeny-bopper fans. Difficult to really describe, it`s an always changing, almost sketch-based odyssey that`s full of surprises and great visuals. And check out the guest star list: Frank Zappa, Sonny Listen, Victor Mature, Carol Doda, Annette Funicello, Terri Garr, Tiger Joe marsh, Dennis Hopper (in a dated behind-the-scenes gag that stretches back to HELLZAPOPPIN`), Timothy Carey, Logan Ramsey, Vito Scotti, Percy Helton and Toni Basil. Monte Hellman edited and Michael Hugo was the Cinematographer. Rafaelson made FIVE EASY PIECES (with Nicholson) next.
