If you’re a fan of 60s music flicks, it’s probably worth your while heading over to Cinedelica, where the first of Optimum’s 60s Beat Classics DVDs are reviewed.
The first titles released in the series are Catch Us If You Can and Gonks Go Beat, both from 1965. The first of those stars the Dave Clark Five and was directed by John Boorman (the man who later directed Deliverance and Zardoz). Gonks Go Beat is the much talked-about beat movie based around Romeo and Juliet – and a movie carrying some hype, by virtue of the fact that no-one has seen it!
Check out Cinedelica for reviews of both (and indeed much more, with new articles added daily). We’ll be giving away sets of the Beat Classics in the coming weeks.
