A Hard Day's Night Reviews

PopMatters

The Beatles might break into song at any moment or they might run around a park goofing around while their songs are playing, but these moments truly work and they clearly helped to lay the groundwork for MTV Videos and musicals to come.

an art film and an exploitation film, a comedy and a musical, a celebration of the Beatles and a satire of their fame and fortune

Movie Metropolis

Critic Andrew Sarris wasn't just playing the fanboy when he described this movie as 'The Citizen Kane of jukebox musicals.' He just might have been selling it short.

The movie never feels like a nostalgia trip. It moves, breathes and sings with life.

Independent

As invigorating and funny now as it was on its original release half a century ago, A Hard Day's Night offers both a perfect showcase for the Beatles and an intriguing snapshot of fast-changing, early-1960s British society.

Times [UK]

It's pure joy as I Should Have Known Better, And I Love Her and Tell Me Why pour out over footage of thousands of screaming, weeping schoolgirls with bouffant hair and miniskirts pursuing John, Paul, George and Ringo.

The whole movie is an ecstatic mix of serendipity and invention. The Beatles were ready for their cinematic breakthrough.

Part musical bonanza, part laugh-out-loud farce, part satirical social document.

It's more than a movie; it's a key artifact (minus must or muss) of a cultural phenomenon.

Radio Times

At a time when Elvis and Cliff were still making old-style musicals, this forerunner of the modern music video smashed the mould.

Allan Hunter
Daily Express

An anarchic, ground-breaking breath of fresh air that weaves a fictional romp around a chaotic day in the life of the Fab Four as they try to make it to their big show.

Guardian

A Hard Day's Night looks chaotic and slapdash enough (and just occasionally, for me, depressing enough) to count as an experimentalist or underground movie.

The simple joys of mucking about are captured in this madcap concert tour farce with the Beatles.

Richard Lester was the man born to direct this kinetic, kaleidoscopic comedy-with-songs, starring a quartet still fresh from the first gusts of chart-topping fame.

Comes bouncing at you from every angle, rubbery and untameable with the joys of teenagehood.

Rejected the status quo with an irreverent, quick-cutting documentary style that could fairly be described as mod, rocking and mocking.

Let's talk about joy, and about wistfulness, because one so often trails the other, and both are woven into the DNA of A Hard Day's Night.
