Movie Info

The Monkees -- Mickey Dolenz, Mike Nesmith, Davey Jones, and Peter Tork -- didn't really enjoy being labelled the pre-Fab Four. They expressed their displeasure in this non-sequitur masterpiece. This film literally has no plot; it is instead a patchwork of loopy sight gags, instant parodies, and musical numbers.

    The Monkees weren't much more than a quartet of goofball musicians and singers, but that kind of low stakes energy is what makes the stream of consciousness, dreamlike narrative enormously fun.

    i think it probably helps to be high during this but it is a fun ride

    I'm not sure how to describe or review this film. Head seems to be a drug-fueled polittically-charged media satire. It's at times funny, random and abstract, and it's quite impressive on a technical level. Not everyone will enjoy this.

    The Monkees go psychedelic. Trying to destroy their bubblegum image, the Monkees, director Bob Rafelson, and screenwriter Jack Nicholson created a stream of conscious film making fun of their own image, commenting on the turmoil of the late sixties, and generally going for something closer to goofy art film than goofy TV show. Don't look for any story here, just a series of vignettes. It mostly works, moves along at a nice pace, features some great songs, and some interesting cameos, including a blink-and-you'll-miss-it Dennis Hopper dressed as his character from Easy Rider, which was shooting at the time.
