Critic Reviews for Wonderwall

All Critics (5)

Self-indulgent whimsy, with not a great deal to be self-indulgent about.

Prism Of Light is impressive in that the person who made it is so young.

February 1, 2019 | Rating: 6.5/10 | Full Review…

It's as much lava lamp as movie, a true head picture from its psychedelic décor [...] to [George] Harrison's music, an often-remarkable mix of rock sounds and traditional Indian instruments.

Wonderwall should be required viewing for anyone interested in popular culture of the 1960s...

In spite of its trippy feel, the basis of the storyline is surprisingly conservative

Audience Reviews for Wonderwall


An absent-minded professor falls in love with the bohemian fashion model next door (a luminous Jane Birkin) when he peeps through a hole in his apartment wall and spies her frolicking in a psychedelic wonderland. It's sort of the ultimate hippie movie: not a lot happens, but there are plenty of pretty swirling colors and long-haired people being groovy. Start your rating at 2.5 stars and add a half-star with each bong rip.
