You Only Live Twice

007 investigates arch-nemesis Blofeld's plan to steal Russian and American spaceships.


Why watch this film?

The iconic villain Blofeld is back in this fifth movie of the James Bond series by Eon Productions. Although it may not be the most remembered film of Sean Connery's era as the character, it certainly has its highlights. Among them, the beautiful theme 'You Only Live Twice', sung by Nancy Sinatra (who, decades later, would appear with a new look in 'Tully'). At times, the story takes a back seat, focusing on the spectacular gadgets of the hero, falling into its own 007 clichés. At the time, 'You Only Live Twice' was the straw that broke the camel's back for Connery, who was worn out and decided to leave the role (which he would return to later). Even so, through today's eyes, it is a fun movie.
