4.0 out of 5 stars Uneven, but worth the trip Aug. 12 2001
Format:VHS Tape
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.

2.0 out of 5 stars You have to be very forgiving.... Dec 12 2001
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
...if you're going to get any pleasure out of this movie. Forgiving of a script and a plot that function mainly as a excuse to show off Jane Birkin's ample features to maximum effect. Forgiving of camerawork with a lens that was apparently smeared with Vaseline throughout each take and sound recording which defies every attempt to make the dialogue understandable (probably a good thing!). Otherwise, you might just as well get a copy of George Harrison's interesting music for this movie (if you can find it) and save yourself the ordeal of sitting through the movie itself. You'll be happier, trust me!

5.0 out of 5 stars It's a shame this movie has never receiived any respect... June 24 2014
By KV Trout - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Blu-ray
... 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.
3.0 out of 5 stars Great late 60's period piece June 5 2014

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!
