Polite and formulaic
8 April 2019 | by cheurtraSee all my reviews

Making a movie about the Beatles without mentioning the releases of Abbey Road and Let It Be or using the word "heroin" is quite a feat. or If you're familiar with the fab four, you won't learn nothing new in this documentary, but you'll have a lot of commentators telling how amazing they were. You won't ear a single critic word about Yoko neither. In conclusion, a very lukewarm movie perfectly designed to be sold on TV.
