Wonderwall is a psychedelic film from the late 1960s that tells the story of Professor Oscar Collins, a reclusive scientist who becomes obsessed with spying on his neighbor by drilling a hole in his apartment wall. Collins lives a lonely life, surrounded by his experiments and peculiar inventions, until one day he discovers Penny Lane, a young and beautiful model who lives next door.

Penny is a carefree spirit who spends her days modeling and partying with her friends, including a group of hippies who introduce her to the world of drugs and free love. Collins becomes fascinated by Penny's lifestyle and starts to observe her every move through the hole in his wall. As he watches her, he becomes increasingly fixated on her and starts to imagine a romantic relationship between them.

Despite his efforts to keep his voyeuristic tendencies a secret, Collins begins to lose touch with reality and his experiments start to suffer. He is fired from his job and becomes more isolated and erratic. Penny finally discovers the hole in the wall and confronts Collins, leading to a series of strange and surreal events that culminate in a dramatic and surreal climax.

The film was directed by Joe Massot and features a cast of talented actors, including Jack MacGowran as Professor Oscar Collins, Jane Birkin as Penny Lane, and Irene Handl as Collins' doting landlady. The film was produced at the height of the psychedelic era and features a colorful and surreal visual style, with intricate sets and costumes that capture the free-spirited vibe of the time.

One of the most interesting aspects of the film is its use of music, with a soundtrack composed by George Harrison that incorporates elements of Indian classical music and avant-garde experimental music. The soundtrack also features songs by The Beatles and other iconic artists, including Ravi Shankar, The Rolling Stones, and Eric Clapton.

Although the film was not a commercial success when it was first released, it has since become a cult classic and is remembered as a unique and daring film that captures the spirit of the 1960s. It is a surreal and psychedelic journey that explores themes of obsession, isolation, and the search for connection in a rapidly changing world. Wonderwall remains a fascinating time capsule of a bygone era, and a testament to the creativity and experimentation that defined the 1960s.

Wonderwall is a 1968 drama with a runtime of 1 hour and 25 minutes. It has received moderate reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 5.6.
