Editorial Reviews

Since its premiere at the Cannes Film Festival in 1968, Wonderwall has remained one of the quintessential films of the psychedelic movement. Featuring a score composed by George Harrison and performed by an all-star ensemble of musicians including George Harrison, Ringo Starr and Eric Clapton, Wonderwall’s kaleidoscope of images set to Harrison's soundtrack catapult the audience into a lost world of innocence, where love and laughter reign supreme.


Set in swinging 1960's London, Wonderwall is the story of a reclusive professor Oscar Collins (Jack MacGowran) who becomes infatuated with his next door neighbors, the beautiful model Penny Lane (Jane Birkin) and her Svengalian photographer boyfriend (Iain Quarrier). When the professor attempts to rescue Penny from an overdose following a quarrel with her boyfriend, he enters the magical realm of the Wonderwall on a transformative journey, and returns to his laboratory a changed man.

Penned by Roman Polanski's scriptwriter, Gerard Brach, "Wonderwall" is a mildly trippy look at obsession and repression, voyerism and sex. The plot is simplicity itself: a mild-mannered professor finds a spyhole in his living room which allows him to become involved in a world of young, Mod, Londoners (circa 1967). Through this hole (his "wonderwall") the professor becomes entwined in a world of fantasy and sexual chemistry and becomes both transformed and the transformer. Directed by the talented Joe Massot (also known for directing Zeppelin's "Song Remains the Same" and the equally wonderfully weird "Zachariah"), "Wonderwall" is filled with bright colour, groovy sounds and a decidedly 60's visual style. It's also been digitally spiffed up and features extended soundtrack music (by George Harrison). My only personal disappointment is with Jack MacGowran, who plays the professor. While he is a brilliant actor, and was wonderful in "How I Won The War", I find him slightly miscast here. But, all-in-all, "Wonderwall" is a minor treat.

... because it is brilliant for what it is.

What it is, is an "art film". The shots, the set design, the concept are very artistic, and as such it is a gem of movie, within that very narrow spectrum of "art films" that have happened rarely throughout film history.

Harrison's soundtrack is WAY AHEAD OF IT'S TIME! Only now can someone like me appreciate it for the first time, having just seen the movie for the first time, 46 years after it was created! Wow. Think about that! A movie that is not appreciated, even by a Beatles fan, a George fan, until 46 years later. Truly a movie and soundtrack that were way ahead of their time.

Now, is this a great movie? No.
But it is a very interesting cinematic experiment which led to the creation of a truly great soundtrack by Beatle George Harrison!

I did actually find the movie very visually interesting. Jane Birkin of course has her own appeal, but aside from her the movie is still very visually exciting and interesting.

I am surprised and disappointed that this movie has only 6 reviews including mine. What a shame! Harrison is still so under-appreciated! While I used to be a Lennon fan above all the others, now it is George who I am fascinated and delighted by.

A rare film artifact that is very enjoyable. The storyline follows various characters in the 60's era in a colorful, funny manner. I enjoyed the story and found the production rife with twists, turns and funny characters. The music enhances the brilliant innovations in film being done at the time.

To appreciate this film, a little perspective and a LOT of tolerance is needed.

Much to the bemusement of any of us who either came of age or was in his or her Twenties at the time, this bauble from the 1960s is as dated as similar baubles from the 1920s or 30s. Yeah, we really did age, by gum! So viewing it very quickly breaks down into what "holds up" and what doesn't, and the latter category has the edge. The first positive quality is the gently comic performance of the late Jack MacGowran as the eccentric Professor Collins, who discovers the world of "Swinging London" through a peephole from his shabby apartment into the apartment next door. It's a stretch to call his role sheer comic brilliance, but MacGowran has a certain Chaplin/Buster Keaton-like quality as this weird nebbish mesmerized by his sexy, exotic neighbors, and that helps keep things on track. The second plus is George Harrison's score, a mishmash of traditional Indian classical music, psychedelic head music and traditional movie soundtrack bathos. This score was Apple Records' first release by a solo Beatle and on its own merits it still holds up as great late night listening that you don't have to addle your brain chemistry to like. Finally, the current HD transfer of this movie is superb and almost makes the movie look like it was shot at least in the late 80s. Rarely have transfers of older films worked so well as this does.

The negatives are the standard-issue when looking at much of late-Sixties popular culture through today's lens. The women characters are there for decoration and nothing more, the hip dialogue is so dated you want to scream, and the story.......what story?? This is not deathless art, it's ancient art, and you expect more from it at your own peril.

I have had the George Harrison soundtrack to this movie for over 40 years. i had never seen the movie. If you want to get a feel about what it was like in the late 60's this is a fun look with some interesting music by George Harrison. Not much of a plot or story. If you are looking for some great acting don't bother. It is a pleasant quirky little piece about the late 60's. No more no less. Very colorful!
