Critic Reviews for Wonderwall
A heady trip best taken for the sensory provocation of its eye-popping set designs and the spaced-out world music ambience of its soundtrack.
It's as much lava lamp as movie, a true head picture from its psychedelic décor [...] to [George] Harrison's music, an often-remarkable mix of rock sounds and traditional Indian instruments.
Wonderwall should be required viewing for anyone interested in popular culture of the 1960s...
In spite of its trippy feel, the basis of the storyline is surprisingly conservative
Audience Reviews for Wonderwall
What it lacks in plot it makes up in some 60s-tastic visuals and a great soundtrack from George Harrison. Also you get to look at Jane Birkin, which is basically the only reason you'd watch this movie anyhow. If there was a better (less weird) plot it could have been pretty good... though props for managing to ride the line between 'scientific observation' and 'creepy old man.' Bonus- the apartments are freaking amazing.
An absent-minded professor falls in love with the bohemian fashion model next door (a luminous Jane Birkin) when he peeps through a hole in his apartment wall and spies her frolicking in a psychedelic wonderland. It's sort of the ultimate hippie movie: not a lot happens, but there are plenty of pretty swirling colors and long-haired people being groovy. Start your rating at 2.5 stars and add a half-star with each bong rip.
There is some interest here as a sort of late '60's Swinging London pop culture time capsule. However, one really needs to have a very strong love for that era. Visually, there is merit. But, this is a cinematic error.
