&quot;I am ... proud of &#39;Head&#39;,&quot; Mike Nesmith has said. He should be,because this film, which either has been derided by many of us orstudied and scrutinized by film professors, works on many levels.<br><br>Yes, it&#39;s unconventional. To many, frustrating. It&#39;s almost as if theproducers hand you the film and tempt: &quot;You figure it out.&quot;<br><br>You probably already know that The Monkees TV show was a runawaymarketing success that depended upon business acumen and no smallserving of public deception. TV shows are about selling soap andtoothpaste first, than to entertain. That The Monkees broke out of thebox for a short time to make &quot;Head&quot; is a testament to the group&#39;spopularity and importance in pop culture, despite where your head&#39;s at.Get one thing straight: &quot;Head&quot; is not The Monkees TV show.<br><br>So what we have here is a &quot;psychedelic documentary&quot; about Western popculture from a source that has authority on the subject. &quot;Head&quot; is amovie that could only come from those &quot;inside the box&quot;. By 1968, TheMonkees&#39; cast and crew were seasoned and weary professionals who hadseen their share of promise and disappointment. The movie was adeliberate attempt at market repositioning. So, it did three things:Make a film the way The Monkees envisioned. Most importantly, reinventthe group to one not subservient to it&#39;s old bosses - and yas, hipperthan before. Make a film that exposed American attitudes of informationdissemination.<br><br>&quot;Head&quot;, therefore, really is about media manipulation and its netresult: deception. The mass media is supposed to inform, educate us onthe happenings in the world at large, and ultimately asks us to formopinions of these events that can shape thought into positive action.Thus we assume the information we absorb to be complete and unbiased -otherwise, how can one establish a valued conclusion on any one ideapresented by a book, newspaper or TV show? In one of the streetinterviews in &quot;Head&quot;, a guy admits, &quot;I haven&#39;t looked at a newspaper orTV in years.&quot; Is he lesser or better the man? Even the drug parallelsare a soft veiling of &quot;Things are not as they seem.&quot; Remember the oldjoke, &quot;Everything you know is wrong&quot;? The screenplay starts with TheMonkees&#39; public admission of it&#39;s own &quot;manufactured image&quot; and runswith the football - literally. Is the football scene in the movie avisual manifestation of the whole idea behind &quot;Head&quot;? Is the film astream-of-consciousness exercise? Is the film the culmination of potsmoking marathons? There are too many coincidences that occur in thefilm that suggest otherwise. My guess is that &quot;Head&quot; is the culminationof motivations somewhere between intended and unintended.<br><br>Largely, the insiders responsible for &quot;Head&quot; seem to enjoy themselvesin the revelries that take place in the film, but there is anger -anger at the chaos that characterized the late &#39;60s and anger at theway the media, television especially, had changed culture in negativeways. Drugs and violence were strong negative forces in the late &#39;60sand still are, but the producers of &quot;Head&quot; want you to know that poor&quot;information&quot; is a far greater danger.<br><br>Wars have been attributed to hoaxes and lies. What perfect way tospread disinformation than through TV? Repeatedly, the mysterious blackbox is seen as an obstacle to The Monkees and seemingly, all of us aswell. In one scene, Peter is sullenly sitting in a saloon holding amelting ice cream cone, and is asked by a fellow Monkey, &quot;What&#39;swrong?&quot; &quot;I bought this ice cream cone and I don&#39;t want it.&quot; The moviesuggests that the first purpose of the media is NOT to inform, but tosell en mass blindly. &quot;Head&quot; goes further: put any idea into someone&#39;shead, and merrily goes he.<br><br>The filmmakers know this, and the danger is real. &quot;Head&quot; is either amovie that creates itself &quot;as we go along&quot;, or is a deliberatestatement. Perhaps, perhaps not. Maybe it is just &quot;Pot meetsadvertising&quot;, as critics scathed in 1968. The jokes are on The Monkeesand us. Be careful what you ask for, you may get it.<br><br>Cheers: A true guilty pleasure. Very funny. Intelligent. Will pleasethe fans. Find the substance, it&#39;s there. Unabashedly weird. Bizarrecollection of characters. Good tunage. Length is appropriate. Lots ofgreat one liners, including my all time prophetic favorite: &quot;Thetragedy of your times, my young friends, is that you may get exactlywhat you want.&quot;<br><br>Caveats: Dated. Drugs. No plot. No linear delivery of any thought inparticular. At least twenty-five stories that interweave in stop-and-go fashion. So, may easily frustrate. May seem pretentious to some.People who can&#39;t stand The Monkees need not watch, though that initself is no reason to avoid it. The psychedelic special effects maykill your ailing picture tube or your acid burnt- out eyeballs.<br><br>Match, cut.

&quot;Head&quot; is one of those films you'll have a lot of trouble convincing yourfriends to see, but once they do they'll fall in love with it. I don'tknowhow many times this has happened to me. This film is just so funny andbizarre, really a deconstruction of everything the Monkees had been up tothis point in their career. A lot the credit goes to Bob Rafelson whopretty much ended the Monkee's career with this film. My guess is hewantedto get out of directing the TV show and get into features, which he didin abig way after this one. Micky Dolenz is absolutely hilarious. I can'tbelieve he didn't have a second life as a comic actor after this film.This film has a lot of great cameos and a lot of wonderful psychedelicnonsense. I feel like the reputation of this film is continuing to buildand it wouldn't surprise me if it eventually becomes a full on cultclassic

You would really need to remember the Monkees and have a clearunderstanding as to where and how they fitted into the second half ofthe 1960s in order to fully appreciate this movie.<br><br>There is no plot as such. Basically, it&#x27;s a crazy, mixed up pastiche ofvarious, unrelated sequences. But, it IS interesting AND entertainingin its own peculiar way once you get onto its wavelength. In short, itwas a classic, cleverly conceived and well crafted example of late &#x27;60sexperimental cinema. It contains some good songs, some ultra-groovycinematography and plenty of other worthwhile ideas in terms of filmtechnique.<br><br>I give it 7 out of 10 for several reasons. First, it took a lot ofcourage to make such an unorthodox movie in the commercial mainstreamwhere both its stars and its producers were firmly ensconced at thetime (whether they liked it or not). It seems that almost everyone whowas associated with the project (with the exception of Columbia whopaid for it) knew that it was probably not going to be a big moneymaker. Their reasons for wanting to do it were as unorthodox as thefilm itself. Secondly, it was, for the most part, a creative success.And, finally, as already mentioned, it is, unquestionably, a classic ofthe genre and, as such, it is now historically important.<br><br>Unfortunately, &#x22;Head&#x22; came too late in the Monkees career. But, thereagain, they wouldn&#x27;t have been allowed to make it earlier on because itwas essentially a very pointed and cynical satire of their own image. <br><br>Clearly, the members of the group knew, only too well, that the wholeMonkeemania thing had pretty well run its course when they started workon this movie. In a way, it was to be their swan song and they weredetermined to let it all hang out. They were tired of being treatedlike mere pawns in the high powered corporate game in which they hadbeen manipulated and exploited over the preceding few years. In short,they &#x22;wanted out&#x22; and they were going to say a few things before theyleft.<br><br>History, however, has vindicated the band. Let the critics be damned.The Monkees, left behind some of the best, most polished and successfulpop records of the decade. Yes, they had plenty of help. But at the endof the day, THEY stood in front of the studio mikes, THEY fronted themovie and TV cameras and THEY did the concerts. They were fun and justa little bit crazy. But, unlike some of their contemporaries, they werenever threatening. You could safely introduce a Monkey to your elderlyaunt.<br><br>&#x22;Head&#x22; probably borrows a bit too heavily from the Beatles &#x22;Hard Day&#x27;sNight&#x22; but it&#x27;s still worth another look for those who were around atthe time or for younger retro fans who can appreciate its significance.<br><br>Enjoy!
