Is all this screaming necessary?
19 May 2016 | by See all my reviews

This documentary begins and ends with amateur super eight films shot by a fan at candlestick Park ,29th august 1966,the last concert -and they insist that nobody thought it would be their last,unless the rooftop concert counts-;it focuses on the Beatles' live act ,but you have been warned:there's ,like in many other stuff about the Fab Four,no music at all,apart from a vague instrumental,recalling as much the early sixties as the Beatles' sound.

Three quarters of the movie are merely a repetition of what 99% of the fans already know,particularly the Shea stadium,the Budokan ,the unfortunate Philippines episode ,"we are more popular than JC " and the KKK and their "public burning".The docu tries to understand why the Beatles bow themselves out in full glory : everyone knows that the group could not hear his playing anymore ,and that by 1966 they were more interested in their work in the studio.But their tours were poorly managed and casualness and negligence are obvious :the episode of the plane with the engine in flames;In Candlestick Park ,the roadies had to carry all the equipment on the stage ("and I did not know how to assemble the drums ");in another city,Paul got electric shocks on an obviously damp uncovered stage .Afterward,we are told the tours became much more professional (for the other groups;the Beatles had all the initial problems to put up with.

what's the most fascinating is these amateurish shoots of. the historical place where the Beatles performed live for the last time;

As Paul asked if the concert was recorded ,George reportedly said :"I'm not a Beatle anymore"
