Head (1968). A famous flop in its day, this Jack Nicholson co-written, Bob Rafelson-directed vehicle for The Monkees has since been re-evaluated as for a fascinating musical satire with its finger on the pulse of late 60s culture. A mix of manic energy, offbeat humour, experimental film choices and fantastic music needs to be seen to be believed.
