Sex, Drugs and Pink Floyd.
Barbet Schroeder's More opened in New York in August of 1969, and for its part, drove one more nail into the censorship coffin. Brimming with nudity and drug use, the former courtesy of the lovely Mimsy Farmer, a cute, scrubbed-looking 23 year-old, who is still in the business, and working hard.
You probably needed to be there to fully understand the era which very much set the aura of the film, especially the goings-on in Ibiza, which certainly appeared to be a beautiful place to spend a summer. Only with fewer drugs.
Filmed between several Eric Rohmer's production, More is the work of one of the greatest of modern cinematographers -- Nestor Almendros. He would return to photograph the beauty of the sea in 1980 for the remake of Blue Lagoon.
More has been released open region on Blu-ray by the BFI, which is working hard to make less known films available in quality editions, of which this is one.
Properly matted at 1.66, and with glorious grain and color, it does right by the filmmakers.
