I just watched the Wonderwall film on YouTube out of curiosity. It's definitely a product of it's time and features a few long-drawn risqué scenes (IMO anyways), but seeing as I love bizarre trippy 60s films, I got a kick out of it! George's soundtrack in the background fits the movie quite nicely. ahdn_george_08I've yet to listen to the soundtrack album in full to re-reflect on the music, but I did enjoy certain snippets of tunes like Peter Tork's (uncredited ahdn_paul_01) banjo solo, Clapton and Ringo 's playing on "Skiing" and the vaudeville sounding "Drilling a Home". As for the characters, Jack McGowran's lead scientist character (Oscar) is very funny and Chaplin-esque, whilst Jane Birkin... I think I may have developed a bit of a mini crush for... ahdn_paul_02

Here's the movie for anyone interested:

If you have never seen it, you might like the movie "Putney Swope" made in 1969 (directed by Robert Downey Sr. -- Junior's father).  Much of it has that old 60s ambiance to it.

Personally, I think that the soundtrack outclasses the movie...  but that's just me...:-)
