6. One of my favorite movies of all time.

I've probably seen it at least a dozen times.

The first time I saw it, I thought it was the most bizarre movie I had ever seen. I had no idea what they were aiming at.

Now the whole movie makes perfect sense to me.

Nice compilation tribute to David Jones.

9. "Head" and "Pet Sounds" are the two most unforgivable holes in my record collection.

I really need to get them. I saw "Head" on TV years ago. The album is great. But, it's by the Monkees, so of course it's great.

Head (film)

Head is a 1968 American satirical musical adventure film written by Jack Nicholson and Bob Rafelson, directed by Rafelson, starring television rock group The Monkees (Davy Jones, Micky Dolenz, Peter Tork and Michael Nesmith),[2] and distributed by Columbia Pictures.

During production, one of the working titles for the film was Changes, which was later the name of an unrelated album by The Monkees. Another working title was Untitled. A rough cut of the film was previewed for audiences in Los Angeles in the summer of 1968 under the name Movee Untitled.

The film featured Victor Mature as "The Big Victor" and cameo appearances by Nicholson, Teri Garr, Carol Doda, Annette Funicello, Frank Zappa, Sonny Liston, Timothy Carey, Percy Helton and Ray Nitschke.[2] Also appearing on screen in brief non-speaking parts are Dennis Hopper and film choreographer Toni Basil.
