Critic Reviews for It Was Fifty Years Ago Today... Sgt Pepper and Beyond

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (5) | Rotten (11)

  • It's not easy to make a documentary about the greatest album in history when you don't have access to a single note of the music, but this documentary forges on and cashes in regardless ...

    Guardian
    Top Critic
  • Alan G Parker's film is an overlong, tedious parade of familiar talking heads (Hunter Davies, Pete Best) trotting out familiar anecdotes and, significantly for a film about an album, there's not a note of Beatles music.

    Ed Potton

    Times (UK)
    Top Critic
  • There isn't a single note of the actual album to be heard, nor any images of the record itself and its famed cover art.

    May 25, 2017 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • What's the point in making a documentary about a classic album if you don't have the rights to any of the music?

    May 22, 2017 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • Even blessed with such a rich subject and vast reserves of archive footage, It Was Fifty Years Ago Today! still has the threadbare feel of an unauthorized cash-in.

    May 16, 2017 | Full Review…
  • Diehard Beatles fans may enjoy the wealth of archive footage featured, but a documentary about an iconic album without any of the music comes across as a cheap attempt to make some money off the back of its anniversary.
