CGiii Comment

A metaphor that is stretched to breaking point.

It's all about the music and the animation........both an acquired taste.

Nilsson, by all accounts, was a difficult & headstrong man - and, as a result, his music suffered.

He took psychedelic drugs and this is the final product. Utter nonsense........a misguided indulgence, those drugs certainly took their toll - making him believe that he was more intelligent than he was............it's infantile crap.

The animation is scruffy, clumsy and amateur.

And, if you do have to watch this - try and get the version that does not feature Ringo Starr.
