Today we’re revisiting Head (1968), directed by Bob Rafelson, written by Rafelson, Jack Nicholson, and The Monkees, and starring the Pre-Fab Four themselves. Timothy is in full froth during the inexplicable “Atta boy Mike” scene.
“You really can’t describe the picture,” Tim told Dick Strout for The Hollywood Report (listen here!). “I read the script and actually it’s the most bizarre film story I ever read before. Each page is another movie. It’s quite unique. I’ve never really been involved – I’ve worked in films before but never any quite as unique as this one. It’s a very hard film to describe… In this picture I played about four different characters. And I didn’t know what I was doing most of the time.”
