Peter Whitehead's disjointed Swinging London documentary, subtitled "A Pop Concerto," comprises a number of different "movements," each depicting a different theme underscored by music: A early version of Pink Floyd's "Interstellar Overdrive" plays behind some arty nightclub scenes, while Chris Farlowe's rendition of the Rolling Stones' "Out of Time" accompanies a young woman's description of London nightlife and the vacuousness of her own existence. In another segment, the Marquess of Kensington (Robert Wace) croons the nostalgic "Changing of the Guard" to shots of Buckingham Palace's changing of the guard, and recording act Vashti are seen at work in the studio. Sandwiched between are clips of Mick Jagger (discussing revolution), Andrew Loog Oldham (discussing his future) - and Julie Christie, Michael Caine, Lee Marvin, and novelist Edna O'Brien (each discussing sex). The best part is footage of the riot that interrupted the Stones' 1966 Royal Albert Hall concert Written by alfiehitchie

Did You Know?


The title comes from a poem by Allen Ginsberg. See more »


Himself (segment "It's All Pop Music"): [Mick Jagger] Well, It seems strange to say because if I say the violence of it, which is one part, which if you ask most young people they'd say they don't like the violence; they don't like the war or they don't like that. They, themselves, are violent. which doesn't seem to make sense.
interviewer: No, it seems you're encouraging them.
Himself (segment "It's All Pop Music"): But it's, I suppose, I don't think, I don't think you have to be violent to overcome it. But some people do and when they're violent against the police, it's just their way...

Of some historical note
19 August 2001 | by matlock-6See all my reviews

Tonight Lets All... is not a flashy hollywood movie, designed for today's Attention Deficit Disorder type of filmgoers. What it is is a unique and well crafted look at London in the swinging 60's. Peter Whitehead made this film inspired by the London underground scene of 1966-67, which included such bands as Pink Floyd (who perform the great bulk of the films music), The Soft Machine, The Crazy World of Arthur Brown, and others. This is probably not the kind of thing that would be well recieved in theatres. There aren't any computer generated insects flaying people alive and being shot to bits in return, nor is there any gratuitous sexuality or repeated foul language use. As a documentary of the underground scene in 1967 London, Whitehead's film is a testament to vision, creativity, and the spirit of the day. There are film clips of Pink Floyd in the recording studio and performing at the 14 hour Technicolor Dream (a huge music and art festival) along with original guitarist, singer, songwriter Syd Barrett. If you like historical documentaries, give this one a try.
