John Lennon: Sweet Toronto (1988)

** (out of 4)

Another concert/document from director D.A. Pennebaker, this one looking at Lennon's set at the Toronto Peace Festival. There's a lot to talk about in this hour long film but Lennon's set is decent, although I found the band to be quiet lame and that includes the playing by Lennon and Eric Clapton. I'm curious to know how many drugs were taken before jumping on stage. The stuff with Yoko Ono was absolutely horrible. Her high pitches squeals and screams grounded my nerves and nearly pushed me over the edge. The best moments happen at the start of the show when we see clips from Bo Diddley, Jerry Lee Lewis and Chuck Berry.
