a revolution in documentary filmaking
7 January 2001 | by (tracy, california) – See all my reviews

why can't there be more documentaries out there about the frenzies and manias that other bands caused? Or perhaps, like many other musical revolutions, The Beatles are the first to do so. This wasn't a documentary on the history of how they formed and what lead to their break-up. Instead it avoids the band members personal stories and bios and just concentrates on the effect their popularity had on the world, as a group. I've seen and read many Beatles documentaries; there are few things in each one that are included in every one: how Paul saw John's first band at a church fair, the death of Stu Sutcliffe, the firing of Pete Best, their first US appearance on Ed Sullivan, their Shea Stadium concert, John's comments on Jesus Christ's popularity, their psychadelic transfer, the attention on Yoko and Linda, their farewell London roof-top performance, and others. But none is complete without the story surrounding John's death, and that's always the part that everyone hates getting to.

But enough about that. What this special does is show how most of today's culture was influenced by the Beatles, not to mention practically the careers of every single interviewee on here. It shows how they influenced music, movies, fashion, slang, youth attitudes, music videos, how concerts were held, how to give an interview, how to take photographs, etc.; there's too much to remember.

I would like to see "The Beatles Anthology", because I haven't actually seen an "official" biography of the Fab Four.

NOTE: Many people don't know this, but Mark David Chapman, the assassin who killed John Lennon, attempted to committ suicide by drowning himself in a lake 3 years before he did what he did. Somebody fished him out, got him to a hospital, and they were able to resesitate him. Ironic isn't it?
