HEAD (NARRATIVE, 1968)
Considering the most recent passing of Monkee Peter Tork, Crosstown Arts is proud to screen the 1968 surrealist, musical nightmare that is the Monkees’ HEAD. HEAD was written by Bob Rafelson and Jack Nicholson and based on an drug-fueled brainstorming session with The Monkees. With Tim Carey, Annette Funicello, boxer Sonny Liston, Frank Zappa, Victor Mature, Toni “Hey Mickey” Basil, Dennis Hopper, Jack Nicholson, rescuing mermaids, attempted suicide (which was what The Monkees were literally doing with their career by making this film), the Nguyen Van Lem execution footage, a swami, and a lot of analogies about how The Monkees felt trapped.
