Storyline

This film examines the masterwork album by the Beatles, Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, released in 1967, with its creation, themes and impact explored in turn. In addition, this film explores the summer of that year with the rise of the counter-culture and hippies for instance, and the whole notion that love and music could change the world.

A great documentary.
18 December 2004 | by (Colorado, USA) – See all my reviews

...and Paul will soon be 64, but then John and George are gone now.

I wish I could find a copy of this on DVD. I guess I'll just have to muddle by with the aging VHS copy I got off of PBS a few years ago (sigh).

I've told many friends about this film and they all wish they could see it. Even 1987, when the film came out seems like a long time ago.

The Merry Pranksters, The Beatles, The Diggers, all of them are in there. Could the world have ever held that much hope, that much innocent belief that things could only better?

Alas, the screws probably don't want you to see anything that makes you think.
