this movie is an example of perfect synchronization between music and images. do you remember how people suddenly began to sing in the old musicals? well, here it looked a bit the same, with only two differences: one, there were no actors, nor story lines to worry about, and two, all the songs came from the Beatles discography. by now, you probably have realized I liked the result, because, why should I spend my time writing this review otherwise? the colorful images represent the sixties marvelously, it's like they are everything we live in, when we watch this experimental short movie. how this was conceived? simply by the words and music of Lennon and McCartney, and, not to forget, the Stan Brakhage-esquire mix of hippie symbols and colorful lines that seemed to have no other purpose than to keep the viewers in the sixties hippie era. Harry Smith, I admire your art.
