A powerful statement about how in a country of "democracy," the peace keepers are deemed the most dangerous to civilization...

An excellent documentary in charting how celebrities can use their public status for good, especially if they have the guts to turn their backs on what made them famous for a greater good.

The breadth of interviews was quite good, and the film goes to great pains to situate Lennon within the wider political framework of the day. Everyone from G. Gordon Liddy to Geraldo are trotted out to either decry or justify the treatment that the Nixon

It's as gripping as any thriller and as moving as any drama with the added fascination of the unfathomable relationship between John and Yoko.

Um belíssimo documentário que nos faz lembrar de que, por ter existido, John Lennon fez deste um mundo melhor.

If anything this film proves that song can have more impact than a little toe tapping and tub-thumping.

What promises to be a provocative account of the late Beatle's involvement with the American underground delivers precious little in this Yoko-approved documentary.

By the time The U.S. vs. John Lennon is done, the filmmakers have reinforced the sense that pop music once produced prophets, as well as profits.

An engaging and informative film about the period in the life of the former Beatle during which he emerged as a political activist and, consequently, a thorn in the side of the Nixon administration.

Looking back, the Nixon administration's muddling seems almost comically inept, except that, much like today, the costs are so unspeakably high.

The movie features a wide array of interview subjects - but, thankfully, the most passionate voice is Lennon's.

The film is not completely satisfying, though it's probably required viewing for anyone who considers himself a fan of the man and his music.
