Imagine is a cinematic collage of color, sound, dream and reality. Produced and directed by John and Yoko and including numerous friends and collaborators like George Harrison, Fred Astaire, Andy Warhol, Dick Cavett, Jack Palance and Jonas Mekas. The music film features a different visual treatment for every song, and follows John and Yoko during the recording sessions for the Imagine album in both the UK and New York, as they co-produced the record with Phil Spector. The 2018 re-released Imagine movie has been restored frame-by-frame, from the original reels with the audio remix by triple GRAMMY® Award-winning engineer, Paul Hicks. It is accompanied by 15 minutes of never-before-seen extras including studio footage of John and his band (including George Harrison, Nicky Hopkins from the Rolling Stones, Alan White from Yes and Klaus Voormann) performing "How Do You Sleep?" and "Oh My Love" in a specially created Dolby Atmos surround sound "raw studio" mix that would put you in the ...
If you've seen any of the John Lennon-Yoko Ono movies then you know that they really don't feature any sort of plot and instead they're just a bunch of images with a variety of different messages that you can take from them. This here is without question their most reachable film for many because it's basically just a long music video with the songs from Lennon's Imagine album played out.
After Lennon's death the opening video of Imagine pretty much became a staple song and it's certainly a very beautiful song and video. From here we basically see a wide range of things between Lennon and Ono. This could be the two of them walking through the woods. The two in a bathtub. There's even a scene of them playing pool. Those are the type of images that we see and all of this is just fine because it matches up with the music perfectly.
Imagine, Crippled Inside, Jealous Guy, Don't Count the Waves, It's So Hard, Mrs. Lennon, I Don't Wanna Be a Soldier, Give Me Some Truth, Oh My Love, How Do You Sleep, How? and Oh Yoko are the songs that are performed here and in my opinion all of them are quite excellent. The album is certainly the masterpiece from Lennon's solo career and fans will certainly enjoy this video of the songs.
