Stephen Shorter (Manfred Mann's Paul Jones) seems like the perfect pop star; he is, however, little more than the puppet and prisoner of a manipulating church and state. What seemed like outlandish speculation in 1967 - the control of the masses through popular culture and celebrity endorsement -- now seems too close for comfort.
Still criminally misunderstood, it is time for Watkins' visually stunning film to be fully appreciated.
