Committee, The


UK 1968, 58 minutes, Black and white
Dir. Peter Sykes
Rating: [M]
Genres: Cult, Music

Topics: Hippies & Psychedelia.

Feat. Paul Jones


Aroview: Short, surrealist slice of British hippie arcana in which a hitchhiker decapitates a passing driver (then changes his mind and sews the head back on), and is held responsible for his actions by a mysterious committee, which meets in an isolated country house.

Starring Paul Jones (of the band Manfred Mann) in the lead, this is at times utterly opaque, yet the spooky atmosphere, Pink Floyd soundtrack and an appearance by maverick singer Arthur Brown, combine in a fabulous swirl of weirdness.
