Misses by the size of the Atlantic Ocean in getting to what the Beatles were about.
Actually, I think that you're missing the point here. If you entered the theater expecting a documentary discussing "what the Beatles were about", then you were in the wrong cinema, buster. I think that maybe if you took a second, unbiased look at the film that maybe you could enjoy it for what it was intended to be, not for what YOU intended it to be.

I believe you are sorely mistaken, for the simple fact that julia taymor watched it with Paul McCartney and he said it was perfect.

if you have heard any of paul's recent solo work, then you would know that his sanity is not to be trusted

Actually, I think this movie really rings true to what the Beatles were about.

I agree, it wasn't about what the Beatles were about. It was supposed to be look at the 60's in general in an artistic way. And what better way to show the 60's artistically than the Beatles (who, of course, started in the 60's and were one of the most artistic bands of all time)? I think you went into the movie expecting something that it wasn't even meant to be.

okay i'd just like to say that paul mccartney and ringo starr (2 obvious members of the beatles) commented on the movie in an interview. the movie is unavailable, but this url can tell you a little bit about what he thought.http://harleyblues2007.blogspot.com/2007/09/across-universe-movie.html

Across The Universe was about LOVE, and that was most Beatles songs were about LOVE.
