Another of John's failed attempts at making little things interesting.
5 July 2008 | by (Long Beach, California) – See all my reviews

John Lennon was a great songwriter, and he never should've tried to be a filmmaker, but he did. In the late 60s and early 70s John Lennon wrote (if you can say there is writing here) and directed several short films, that he was trying to be artsy with. This one is surprisingly one of his best, which shows how much I despise his film-making.

The girls in the 60s went crazy over the Beatles, so if you were one of those girls, or just someone who is dying to see a sustained close up of John Lennon's face, then this is for you. Here we are treated to a slow motion 50 minute close up of John Lennon's face in which he gives a weird look like he's about to laugh, and then smiles. He seems to be standing in a garden, and all you ever see on screen is John's head and some trees and bushes in the background.

There's really not much to review. This is just a boring short film, that even students in love with stylistic artistic films would hate. Hopefully John had a good time making this, so at least one person in the world enjoyed anything that had to do with this.

My rating: BOMB/****. 50 mins.
