Review

A star rating of 3 out of 5.

Here's a real find: one of the quintessential (and now forgotten) Swinging London films of the late 1960s. Watch eccentric professor Jack MacGowran peer through his hole in the wall at disturbed model Jane Birkin amid psychedelic butterfly effects and swirling sitars. The film is effectively director-less, Roman Polanski having wisely turned it down, proffering his protégé Joe Massot instead, a nice man with no noticeable talent. The movie is, uniquely, the sum of the work of its four superb collaborators: cameraman Harry Waxman, art director Assheton Gorton, editor Rusty Coppleman, and composer (and Beatle) George Harrison.
