Video of the Week: “Head”

Hang on for this week’s video! It’s Head (1968), starring The Monkees,  produced and directed by Bob Rafelson, and written by The Monkees (uncredited), Rafelson and Jack Nicholson. This is the film in its entirety. As I’ve said many times previously, please don’t try to make any sense out of it (except perhaps as some kind of meditation on the insanity of fame, or something). Just let its weirdness wash over you.

Also keep an eye out for a cameo by the fellow to whom Timothy gave his first big break, Frank Zappa. This movie contains three of my favorite things – mermaids, belly dancers, and Timothy Carey. How could you go wrong?
