Hi everyone! I'm starting some new features here at ALNM (which I'm sure Kelly will be THRILLED about when she returns). So be sure to keep an eye out for some new interactive posts and original content in the new future. Let's start off with "What I Watched This Weekend" below!
Where I Watched It: Hulu
Would I Recommend It: Yes.
My Review: This may not satisfy people who want a deep comprehensive look at The Beatles career or the men who changed the face of pop culture, but that is not what this documentary is meant to do. This film takes a look at a specific moment in history and shows the impact it had on the band and society as a whole. The touring years are a period often looked over in other Beatles anthologies it seems. Seeing the impact it had on the band (leading to them not performing live anymore) helped give you a better understanding of how young they were at the time and unprepared for the fame they garnered. That fact is often buried beneath their legacy. Also seeing celebrities talk about being young themselves and how much seeing the band live meant to them was one of my favorite parts of the film. Definitely give it a watch when you have a chance, even if you don't think you're a fan of The Beatles early work.
