This "biography" evolves around the nearly 240 hours of film and videotape fortuitously taken by Lennon of his life. The archive footage is transformed into a fascinating life story of one of the most complex and fascinating men of the modern music era. This effort includes a 36 song soundtrack. Includes some very personal and insightful footage, never before made available to the public.Written by
The movie's soundtrack album was the first to combine songs John Lennon performed with The Beatles with his solo work. It also marked the first appearance, in demo form, of his song "Real Love", which the surviving Beatles used as the basis for a new single for the "Beatles Anthology" series. See more »
I don't believe in magic. I don't believe in Jesus. I don't believe in Kennedy. I don't believe in Elvis. I don't believe in Zimmerman. I don't believe in Beatles. I just believe in me.

An insightful look at the life of a complex entertainer.
This is a well done Andrew Solt documentary made up with some wonderful never-before-seen home movies. The late musician's own narration makes for an eerie portrait of the former Beatle. You will see John Lennon as being witty, sarcastic, determined and loyal; but also childish, bawdy, and irreverent. This multi-talented musician will be loved and remembered for generations to come. Over 30 songs make up the soundtrack. Very worthwhile and musically historic.
