Aro Favourite Privilege


UK 1967, 103 minutes
Dir. Peter Watkins
Rating: [M]
Genres: Cult, Music

Topics: Media, Politics.


Aroview: Paul Jones (one-time vocalist for the Manfred Mann group) fronts a government-sanctioned brainwash as a rock idol whose music is being used to control the nation’s unruly youth.

Conceptually decades ahead of its time, its potent ideas and images override slight weaknesses in acting department in what was the iconoclast Peter Watkins' first fiction feature (albeit, a quasi-mockumentary). In retrospect, it presages say, TOMMY, or even A CLOCKWORK ORANGE as an article of subversive Brit-pop.
