The Society of Cool!
A classic "mod related" one is "Blow Up", and actually made in 1966, too!

Despite what people may think of it the only film that really concentrated on Mods as such is QUADROPHENIA. As mentioned the recent BRIGHTON ROCK is played against a '60s backdrop which includes some scenes of Mods and scooters and stuff. Many people look upon anything from the mid 1960s with a few scooters in it or some Pop Art references as Mod 'friendly'. Things with sharply dressed guys and 'swinging' gals' also fall into the category of 'Mod' films too for many but none can really be classed as such. However all the films mentioned so far along with maybe the Harry Palmer movies, the Coburn 'FLINT' films, Roger Moore's CROSSPLOT, MODESTY BLAISE and SMASHING TIME! are worth a look and I certainly never turn my nose up at seeing them.
JB´s right in so far as Sting representing the top Face is an absolute joke. So are lot´s of the extras. Or things like a clearly visible Who "Quick One/ Sell Out" double feature LP at the house party in 1965. Most people of my gerneration feel a bit nostalgic about the movie though, for it helped us kick-start our mod-ism.
"Gangster No 1", that's a proper mod film!! "Hard Men" that's a good one, when they scrap the Maltese they play "Let's Go" The Routers . I'm actually friends with Michael Gordon who wrote the tune and he was very surprised when I told him his tune was used in the film , nobody had told him. He's a film director himself now as well, he directed the film "Narc" starring Ray liotta
It seems there are no MOD films, just films with MOD influences.
Here's some more, 60s James Bond films,
The Italian Job (Michael Caine)
The Men From UNCLE
cheers mate ill give them a try.
Get Carter , In Like Flint , Point Blank
The night club Caine goes into in Get Carter was called the Oxford Galleries, I Went there many times in the 60,s it was a great Mod place for a while
"Catch Us If You Can" is a vastly underrated teen film of the 1960's.Featuring the Dave Clark Five it was Directed by John Boorman and has some wonderful glimpses of 60's England.
To get a flavour of the film go to Youtube and search for "Dave Clark Five When". Two minutes of pure nostalgia for my lost youth!
