Did You Know?

Trivia:
The painting on the professor's side of the "wonderwall" is a colorization of "The Passing of Arthur" [black and white illustration] by Florence Harrison from Alfred Lord Tennyson's "Guinevere and Other Poems". London: Blackie & Son, [1912]. The original illustration has the caption "Morte d'Arthur"; it is not to be confused with the color illustration with the same title, done by the same artist for the same book.See more »

Incomprehensible Mess, 7 December 2006
Author: bowdenj-1 from United States

This film is a piece of pretentious, pseudo-psychedelic crap. It is bad even for the sixties (and, being a child of the sixties, I've seen it all)! As for the soundtrack, George Harrison was right - he didn't know anything about movie music. Of course, all the people who slobber all over anything related to the Beatles will call the soundtrack a work of genius, but it's a perfect match for this dismal attempt at....what? Certainly, Harrison was a gifted guitarist (and Ringo was a pretty good drummer), but not everything the Beatles touched was magic (witness Hey Jude and Let It Be - two pieces of absolute twaddle to which no one would have given a second listen had they been written and performed by anyone else. However, I will say this in defense of Harrison: no one could have written a soundtrack that could have saved this piece of dreck.
