"Head", directed Bob Rafelson

Movie, 1968

A patchy film; the acting is patchy (though far from disastrous), the set pieces patch -running from goofy-smart satire to psychedelic nonsense – and most notably the music, which is never outright bad, ranges from the slightly dull to the ridiculously good. To say this is a product of its time is an understatement. Head presents viewers with a disjointed watch which can feel like an ordeal at times. Good fun though, with some wonderful ideas mixed in with all the arch and daft concepts which miss as much as they hit.
