From the fab folks at VIDEO WATCHDOG, here is a recent article on HEAD, the oddball 1968 film helmed by the Monkees! Read about how Jack Nicholson and Frank Zappa were involved in the picture, and how it went on to fund the more successful EASY RIDER movie! Some fans say HEAD was the Monkees at their best, others say it represented the nadir of their filmed work, and others are still just plain confused by this mad and non-linear psychedelic flick!
