Plenty of Ono, not enough Lennon...
5 September 2000 | by D@rth FredeSee all my reviews

This is perhaps the best rockumentary ever. The only bad thing about it, is Yoko Ono's influence on the movie, as executive producer. She appears in almost every scene for god's sake. People who watch this movie watches it for him not her. But I didn't write this comment to trash the movie, so let's have a look on the good things about it. The most important thing in this flick is the man himself, John Lennon. And in this movie you really get under his skin. You see (and hear) his feelings about Paul McCartney, you see his attitude towards his fans (even the ones of them that's nuts) and you you see... a lot of Yoko Ono.

Let me wrap this comment up by saying, that I gave this movie a "9", and I think, that You should to. It's a great peace of history that we (the public) never before have been allowed to see.

P.S. Make love not war.
