David Cornelius

In which The Monkees get stoned, commit career suicide, and end up accidentally making one of the best movies of the 1960s.

Parallax View

... a surreal mix of psychedelia and satire, a loopy twist on their lighthearted TV show with a dark undercurrent squeezed in between genre parodies.

There is an inherent curiosity quotient for any project this inherently whacked out, which helps smooth over the underlying rub that Rafelson is using the film to rather portentously blow his own horn

If the Beatles were housebroken Marx Brothers, the Monkees here are gutty Bowery Boys

The clean-cut kids and the created kinetics work up a 'so-what' reaction too soon in the 85-minute stretch seques from war to westerns to desert chases to mad scientist brushes in the Columbia lot.

The result is a visually daring cinematic game that is virtually plotless and better off for being so.

Despite obviously dated aspects like clumsy psychedelic effects and some turgid slapstick sequences, the film is still remarkably vital and entertaining.

Equal parts good trip, bad trip, and cheesefest.

The movie is, nonetheless, of a certain fascination in its joining of two styles: pot and advertising.

The great movie suicide attempt. The Monkees succeed in killing their careers.

Messy it may be, but Head acts as a fascinating document that marked the passing of Woodstock's loved-up summer into the violent winter of Altamont.

Considered a train wreck in 1968, this rock flick keeps getting better with age.

It's the deliberate assassination of the group by the group itself -- as far removed from their carefully crafted TV image as possible.
