Beatles Explosion Reviews
November 27, 2010
In this 2008 documentary by Sandy Oliveri we can see the impact of the Beatles throughout their entire career by using rare footage of interviews, newsreels, press conferences, TV appearances (including one where they performed Shakespeare). The film highlights some great moments in their career such as their early days together, their first trip to America and even a behind-the-scenes look of A Hard Day‚(TM)s Night.
Even though the documentary does not contribute much to cinema like the films they did back when they were together the film actually gives us a different way to do a documentary as the footage in this film is brought in a collage type of way. At first it is hard to understand but after watching one or two more times you can quite understand it. So if there‚(TM)s any contribution made to cinema by this documentary is that not all documentaries have to be made in a certain form they can be made in very varied ways, they don‚(TM)t always have to have a formula.
Personally I think the film is great but not as great as the films made by the Fab Four in the 1960s but it is still great and definitely another piece to have if you‚(TM)re a Beatles fan.
