Favorite Scenes: Head (Bob Rafelson, 1968)

While watching the Monkee’s movie Head, I couldn’t stop thinking of the really creative Nobuhiko Obayashi’s Hausu (1977). While Hausu has more of a conventional plot than Head (which isn’t saying much) all the creative uses of editing is what connected the two films for me. The moment that put a smile on my face when I first saw it was the sequence when Davy Jones is singing “Daddy’s Song” and doing a very lively dance to accompany the song’s more tragic lyrics. The scene switches from Davy wearing a white suit on a black sound stage to a black suit on a white sound stage and back and forth with really exciting results. And there’s a great cameo at the end.
