Storyline

In 1969, a 14-year-old Beatle fanatic named Jerry Levitan, armed with a reel-to-reel tape deck, snuck into John Lennon's hotel room in Toronto and convinced John to do an interview about peace. Using the original interview as the soundtrack, this narrative tenderly romances Lennon's every word in a cascading flood of multi-pronged animation. Written by Sundance Film Festival

Uninspiring and uninspired short
5 October 2008 | by Gordon-11See all my reviews

This short film is an animated version to go with an audio taped interview with John Lennon in 1969.

Honestly, I don't quite see the point of this short film. It is not particularly creative or interesting. The scene of the guy and the audio tape recorder is repetitive, and serves little purpose apart from being a filler to the more creative scenes. It looks as if the filmmakers ran out of ideas and hence put these filler scenes to make up 5 minutes. If they were truly creative, they could have made their own interview, or just a soundtrack to go with the animation. Instead, rehashing an old interview looks uninspiring and uninspired, using John Lennon's name to elevate their profile.
