* SpiritualSuccessor: Jack Nicholson wrote the screenplay for Creator/RogerCorman's ''[[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Trip_(1967_film) The Trip]]'' before he worked on ''Head'', and there are some definite commonalities in the two films, to the extent that ''Head'' plays almost like a parody of ''The Trip'' at times.

The film was a flop, grossing $16,111 with a $750,000 budget, and was one of the factors that led to the band's demise. Audience and critical reception were both poor; it was too trippy to appeal to established fans of the band, its actual target audience being the same people who hated their TV show. Through the years, however, it was VindicatedByHistory, along with the band itself, and became a CultClassic, standing as an example of [[MindScrew pure weirdness] matched by very few films of the era.

''Film/{{Head}}'' is a film released in 1968, starring TV rock group Franchise/TheMonkees, and distributed by Creator/ColumbiaPictures. It was written and produced by Bob Rafelson and Creator/JackNicholson, and directed by Rafelson.

''Film/{{Head}}'' begins at the dedication of a bridge; The Monkees suddenly interrupt the ceremony by running through the assembled officials, to the sound of various horns and sirens. The rest of the film has no overriding plot. There are several short vignettes that consist of a conflict and resolution, but the film is essentially plotless, a seemingly stream of consciousness stringing-together of musical numbers, satire of various film genres, elements of [[PsychedelicRock psychedelia]], and references to topical issues such as UsefulNotes/TheVietnamWar.
