Trivia

When first approached to compose the movie's soundtrack, George Harrison replied "I don't know how to do music for films." When director Joe Massot promised to include whatever Harrison chose to write, Harrison accepted, composing songs as he was inspired by watching rushes of the unfinished movie, with the help of a stopwatch, to properly time the music to the scenes.

THE psychedelic masterpiece
1 June 2005 | by (springfield, ma) – See all my reviews

for me, the psychedelic equivalent of Citizen Kane must either be Wonderwall or else Conrad Rooks' Chappaqua. this film must be THE psychedelic masterpiece. it comes with incredible credentials. just check the credits. i was recently watching it with james t. rao (from the band Orange Cake Mix) & he said, "wow, this must be the BEST psychedelic film!" & we've watched almost EVERY film of this genre. don't take LSD & watch the film. or DO take LSD & watch the film. you'll find very little difference. the plot is touching & sentimental but with an edge. the "message" of this wonderful art film is complex & multi-layered & manifold. watch it a few times & see new things each time. "it's the lanolin that does it." the color is gorgeous. the DVD extras are incredible & include the director's first film (a short).
