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

Quotes

Herself (segment "Movie Stars"): [Julie Christie] Everything's happened to me and I haven't happened to anything. Things have happened to me. I think I'd better start happening to something. And one thing after another has happened to me, I mean it's quite incredible, actually. It's the most extraordinary thing. I don't know how it's happened. I think it's going to stop any minute.
Herself (segment "Movie Stars"): Did you have me saying I didn't like that Sidney Lumet one? You will be kind, won't you? Not secure enough that I can lose parts yet.

less than the sum of its parts
19 October 2012 | by MuswellmediaSee all my reviews

Director Peter Whitehead was something of a one man band as a film maker making news items and what we now call pop promos. So what we get here is a number of the kind of films he was producing at the time joined together, collage like, rather than a rounded supposedly complete vision. But hey thats what it was like, there was no simple straight line narrative knitting it all together. Personally I think this makes it more honest and valuable as a document of the time and the reason why TV programmes are still using this material to illustrate programmes about the period.

My favourite moment features the Stones playing the Royal Albert Hall and whipping the audience up into a rioting mob that flood the stage with Brian Jones laughing his head off at the chaos. Also Lee Marvin and Michael Caine define cool while Vanessa Redgrave sings out of tune.
