Jack Nicholson on HEAD

monkees-blogFriday, April 26 at midnite: HEAD (Bob Rafelson, 1968) | Buy Tickets!

We’re pretty excited to have Eric Lefcowitz (author of Monkee Business: the Revolutionary Made for TV Band) in house this Friday night to introduce our screening of Bob Rafelson’s cult film, Head. Here’s an excerpt from his book in which Jack Nicholson (co-screenwriter and 77th birthday boy) proclaims his love of this strange avant-garde film that illicit various reactions upon its release, including none at all!

monkee-biz-coverIn a 1970 profile written by Rex Reed for the New York Times, Nicholson made his only known comment about the film. “Nobody ever saw that, man but I saw it 158 million times. I loved it,” he said. “Filmatically, it’s the best rock and roll movie ever made. I mean, it’s anti-rock and roll. Has no form. Unique in structure, which is very hard to do in the movies.”

*copies of Monkee Business will be available for sale and to be signed by Lefcowitz after the screening. There will also be a special treat for the first 10 audience members!
