Just awful in every way.
30 June 2008 | by (Long Beach, California) – See all my reviews

To go along with John Lennon and Yoko Ono's most awful album, the two decide to make one of the worst, ugliest sounding, most pointless short films ever. Obviously, John and Yoko were madly in love with each other, but why make a movie like this? It's nothing more than two scenes of nothing, with music from the album this was named after, which sounds like a horrible, unedited version of John Lennon's much better song Revolution 9.

John and Yoko are the two virgins. There's no plot to be found, as is there no talent to be seen anywhere in the picture. I have to say, the best part was probably the white title screen that says "The Two Virgins". At least John and Yoko's music isn't played over the opening credits. This short, but overly long 19 minute film seems to consist of two parts. The first is John's face super imposed on Yoko's, so we see both of them making faces and looking around. It's almost like the didn't know the camera was on and were just standing there looking around, but that's not the case. They felt this was art...it isn't. The second part is John and Yoko slowly going towards each other and making out for about 10 minutes.

It's obvious John and Yoko were trying to make an artsy short, which they miserably failed at, and it's obvious also that the music here is there attempt at being different. It's also obvious that they could care less what others thought, but wanted everyone to know how much they loved each other. After watching this, any sane person would have wanted them to break up, if the genius of John Lennon was reduced to terrible shorts and even worse music.

This was the worst short I've ever seen, and I like Lennon and his music, but this wasn't Lennon and his music. This is a Yoko-fied Lennon with his head up his you know what making trash.

My rating: BOMB/****. 19 mins. Not rated, contains sensuality and cussing in the song.
