Storyline

Peter Whitehead's disjointed Swinging London documentary, subtitled "A Pop Concerto," comprises a number of different "movements," each depicting a different theme underscored by music: A early version of Pink Floyd's "Interstellar Overdrive" plays behind some arty nightclub scenes, while Chris Farlowe's rendition of the Rolling Stones' "Out of Time" accompanies a young woman's description of London nightlife and the vacuousness of her own existence. In another segment, the Marquess of Kensington (Robert Wace) croons the nostalgic "Changing of the Guard" to shots of Buckingham Palace's changing of the guard, and recording act Vashti are seen at work in the studio. Sandwiched between are clips of Mick Jagger (discussing revolution), Andrew Loog Oldham (discussing his future) - and Julie Christie, Michael Caine, Lee Marvin, and novelist Edna O'Brien (each discussing sex). The best part is footage of the riot that interrupted the Stones' 1966 Royal Albert Hall concert Written by alfiehitchie

Swinging London in a nutshell
24 October 2006 | by (Austria) – See all my reviews

Encapsulated in 67 minutes of blown-up 16mm color film is Swinging London at its best! Everything is there: the music, the protests, the stars, the fashion, the artists. Presented in the style of the sixties, odd camera movements, psychedelic color effects and complicated montages of stock footage combined with new material. Organised in chapters, we see some interviews of then and sometimes still famous people talking about what is going on in their lives and in London particularly.

Sadly the color of the film faded into brownish red mostly, every trace of blue completely gone. It is obviously the work of someone new to the medium, because he does not hesitate to try out various effects, using the music to its best advantage.

I just saw the film yesterday at Vienna"s International Film Festival and Peter Whitehead was there and talked about it. Great guy!

P.S. I don't understand why so many reviewers write about Pink Floyd in this film. They are there but don't play an important role. Some reviewers definitely refer to a different film.
