very strange without a note...
1 June 2017 | by antoniotiernoSee all my reviews

Why making a doc regarding a music album (one of the best known in music history) without having the music? This film about The Fab Four must cope with this lack and the outcome is disappointing, totally. With no access to songs and films of them in the studio, the result isn't pretty, given that the stories have been told, written and explained million of times. Things thus standing a much shorter footage might have been enough. On the other hand that's the 50th anniversary and another movie had to be expected after the Ron Howard's one but this one is only for Beatlemaniacs.. overlong also the finale devoted to Brian Epstein's death.
