Movie Info

Christopher Munch's boldly original debut, THE HOURS AND TIMES (1992), is a fictional account of what might have happened in April 1963, when John Lennon and Beatles manager Brian Epstein traveled to Barcelona for an extended weekend getaway. In the four days they spend together, the suave Epstein (played by David Angus) and the provocative Lennon (Ian Hart in his first starring role) reflect on their lives, both private and professional, as they explore the unique bond they share. Munch's sparse and intimate narrative, captured with exquisite black-and-white cinematography, is a thoughtful meditation on friendship and sexuality, crafted around a brief moment in the lives of two extremely well-known pop figures.

    acount of what happend when john lennon and beatles manager brian epstein vacated to barcelona for 4 days before beatlemania broke out, as lennon for reasons needed to get away, here we see them have various conversations in hotel rooms and lobbys, and the film suggests that while epstein is and confirmed his sexuall position(he was gay) but also that he and lenon had a fasination with each other, and actually something was going on and suggests lennnon was actually gay, a great talking heads piece, we go from conversation to conversation, fasinating watching these 2 actors go to work, ian hart as lennon, and david angus as epstein are perfect, there acents spot on, hart with his liverpool acent and angus perfectly showing a stiff upper lip englishman, wether this happend who knows, but im sure epstein has confirmed some of this life, and at a very short 55 mins, not sure this can be clast as a film, but with its black and white photoghraphy, and great acting, im reviewing it on here, a great commpanion piece to other beatles film backbeat
