It's The Cover Of UK Pal Format Copy of The Mokees Movie "Head", featuring Frank Zappa and Jack Nicholson.
great movie, frank had a bit part... the opening scenes up to where they're falling thru space is very cool

GOD!  What a fantastic movie!<br>    They wanted to break their image and take their own control...they broke it alright...that and the minds of the few people who went to see it when it came-out!<br>    The only comedy 1960's movie that shows someone getting executed in the first half-hour...for real ,uncut!Not a light movie,and what a wild set of effects too!<br>    The part with the trippy effects in the hallway of mylar balloons ,that leads to the birthday party scene is one of THEE most screwed-up pieces of camera/mind f#ckery you can ever see!<br>     Where else in 1960's movies could you see your favorite plastic-pop idol commit suicide by jumping off of a bridge in the film's opening scenes?<br>     Frank has one of the best lines in the movie too!<br>     Timothy Carey(of the" World's Greatest Sinner "fame)is one of the main "bad guys" too...conceptual continuity alert!  Did ya ever wonder why 200 Motels is sorta like a demented Monkee's show....huh,did ya? :o

Criterion Collection is releasing "Head" as part of a boxset

http://www.criterion.com/films/27527-head

Criterions are not known to be cheap DVD's so It might be a bit expensive if you only want head..

I will get this set for sure, but I am also very interested in some of the other titles.
