The fact someone had the guts to make such an uncompromising and bizarre film with little to no commercial prospects in the mid-60s is amazing
3 December 2006 | by (Worcester, MA) – See all my reviews

"Mickey One" is a Hollywood film produced by a major studio starring Warren Beatty and directed by Arthur Penn (before either went on to "Bonnie and Clyde"). Its also one of the most surreal films I've seen, rivaling anything by either David Lynch. Who would've thought? The fact someone had the guts to make such an uncompromising and bizarre film with little to no commercial prospects in the mid-60s is amazing. These kind of existentialist head pictures would've been in vogue for at least another five or ten years in Hollywood. This all makes "Mickey One" incredibly ahead of its time. Its also a fascinating and unique American picture. Its a shame this hasn't been put out yet onto DVD and its one of the most unfortunately overlooked films from a decade that produced many.

This is one of those films that seems to work on its own inner logic. The plot is slightly confusing (set up by an absolutely brilliant montage at the beginning) but the skill put into the project make it all worthwhile. Warren Beatty hasn't made any really good films in a while, but back in his heyday he was one of the best actors working. This is as good as his performance in either "Bonnie & Clyde" or "The Parallax View". The fact that the film is so experimental and yet manages to make his (and Alexandra Stewart's) characters sympathetic amidst the madness and supporting caricatures is no small feat. The interesting thing to wonder at the end is if Mickey's paranoia is justified or not. While the hyper-kinetic style can grow thin occasionally, this is still a daringly original film. I feel this will improve with each viewing. (8/10)
