It's a strange one, for sure, and though it seems to be forgotten today, it apparently did well at the time. The visual style, with lots of slapstick, jump cuts, changing frame rates, is very much like the Beatles films. In fact director Karel Reisz and 'Hard Days' Night' director Tony Richardson worked together quite a bit.

Somehow I saw it near to its original release, though I would have been just 10-12 years old. It made quite an impression, though a lot of that may have been a young Vanessa Redgrave in her underwear.
