Part of Music City Mondays and Spirit of '69.

Stefan leads a predictable and safe life in Germany. Finished with his studies, he vows to discard all convention and sets off on a European adventure. Courting trouble after hitchhiking to Paris, he follows Estelle, an enigmatic free-spirited American, to Ibiza—and is soon caught up in her taboo relations and wanton drug use. Far from home, Stefan loses control of his own experiment with tragic results. Barbet Schroeder’s first film, MORE is also notable for its soundtrack, composed by Pink Floyd.

“MORE is a film of crystalline sunlight, great sweeps of seascape, of love made—and narcotics taken—in the open air…. A curiously effective dramatization of the kind of puritan ethic that demands that pleasure be paid for by pain and tragedy. It's 19th-century romance set to a rock tune on a portable cassette tape recorder.” —Vincent Canby, New York Times (Aug 1969)

“MORE is perhaps the first 'turned-on' movie to give a truly accurate picture of what the 60s drug culture did to people, a couple of years before American pictures found the subject in films like PANIC IN NEEDLE PARK.” —Glenn Erickson, TCM

“Pink Floyd were commissioned to provide the score to MORE...represent[ing] a turning point more than a success story for the group, as Pink Floyd took its very first steps without both Barrett and producer Norman Smith.” —Dave Swanson, Ultimate Classic Rock
