What is HEAD all about? Only John Brockman's shrink knows for sure!

Buy watching this film you can tell the boys along with Jack Nicholson have been dropping acid. As a teenager I watched The Monkees on TV, but at the time the film was released in November of 1968 I had never even heard of it. Apparently the movie only made a little over $16,000.00 at the box-office, so not many people saw it. Head offers no plot, but has The Monkees segued from one event to the next. The Monkeys trip through various movie scenes like war, horror, comedy, drama, western, sci-fi, and romance, and lampoon themselves at the same time. Look for cameo appearances by Jack Nicholson and a real brief shot of Dennis Hopper in his EASY RIDER outfit. Frank Zappa has a small roll as The Critic.  Watch Head stoned because, Monkees is da cwaziest people!★★★
