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 "Dollygirls"): [Edna O'Brien] You meet a boy now, or a man, and you don't really have to protest about your virginity. In fact, it will be a great disappointment to him if you say, you know, it's the first time, I mean he'll leave the room.
Herself (segment "Dollygirls"): The other thing that makes a woman free now is, I suppose, money. They have money and they can work so the dependence on a man isn't as great. But the thing that makes her very un-free and always will, I imagine, is although she has a sort of vagrant heart, a woman does ...

A brilliant reflection of Swinging London...
3 June 2002 | by apigpukeSee all my reviews

This film is a great reflection of London and the British scene in the 1960's, dated for 1967, with authentic film footage of Pink Floyd with brilliant Syd Barrett heading them. Some people say it is boring, but should not leave reviews if they feel so strongly to negate a film which requires patience and culture, perhaps a more enlightened perspective. It features cameos by Lee Marvin parading about, as well as Eric Burdon, another legend. The reason why some do not understand it is because it is'nt filled with gimmickery or special effecst or some ellaborate script that fits into some conventional genre. But it is an experimental film, a time-capsule with rare raw footage that Floyd fans or any British scene enthusiast would love. I personally was thrilled and would reccomend the film to anyone with interest or the I.Q. to comprehend the film's inherent idea. If you are looking for some passionate drama or an Arnold S. gore-fest, go elsewhere. Dig this film!
