Also SFF. Gee's this was really good. John Lennon is up there with micheal jackson and elvis preseley as far as i'm concerned. Seeing and hearing all the recordings and footage is quite amazing as it makes the viewer realise he's been dead for 30 yrs. This is a wart's and all view of one of the 20th century's most influential artist's. From the end of the beatles to the very end in december 1980. It's hard to believe he was only 40 yrs old. What a life he had !!!! Also great is seeing the footage of new york in the 70's. It goes into great detail how the nixon government tried to deport him because they viewed him as a radical and a subversive. he just wanted everybody to get a fair go in life. I just think about all the great music he might have made if he wasn't killed at such a young age. Very highly recommended.

An enjoyable time-capsule of John Lennon falling in love with Yoko Ono and leaving England for NYC. Cool archive footage with insight from session musicians, friends, publicity, and Yoko herself. It's good.

Interesting documentary about the life of John Lennon in his years after the Beatles, when he was living in New York and was eventually killed there.

While this documentary covers some of the same territory as the exceptional "The U.S. vs. John Lennon," what sets it apart is the focus on John Lennon's relationship with Yoko, their separation, his wild times in L.A. and the eventual reconciliation, fatherhood to Sean and maturity with the "Double Fantasy" sessions. Great interviews and lots of archival film, recordings and photographs make this a must for any Lennon fan.
