It was cute for about 30 minutes than I wanted to tear the head off of John Lennon. Lennon and his pseudo bad boy image was annoying. The best thing about this was the music and Brambell playing McCartney's grandfather.
They actually did get their hair cut like every other day, so it would look like that. Squares used to ask them why don't they cut their hair but actually they cut it all the time so they would look perfect.
The Beatle's first feature film is more than just an extended music video - in fact, the musical numbers are the least interesting part of the film. A rollicking, free-form absurdist comedy full of hilarious dry British humor. Director RIchard Lester keeps the comedic energy moving with breezy camerawork and great black and white cinematography. A wholly original classic.
A perfect example for building a film around nearly no story, using the popularity of musicians (and their songs) as link for the different situations. But the script has definitely some very funny pre-Monty Python nonsense dialogues. One of my favorites: "How did you find America?" - "Turn left after Greenland."
Una de las obras maestras de los 60...el primer video-rock de la historia...una pelicula divertidisima, genial,...etc, etc, etc. Son tantas las criticas positivas que se han escrito sobre esto, por lo que quizá mis expectativas eran demasiado altas. Para cualquier admirador de los Beatles promedio, ver esta cosa debe resultar una experiencia verdaderamente fascinante. Yo la vi y se me hizo una reverenda pendejada.
