Another lovely scene takes place at John's Titenhurst mansion in 1970. A homeless hippy has been sleeping in John's garden and the camera shows John and Yoko confronting him. The hippy rhapsodizes about the Beatles song "Carry that Weight," and extols the lyrics. John sardonically says, "Yeah, well that was *Paul* singing that!" Then the Lennon's invite the homeless man in for some breakfast.
There is additional footage from the early 70's of John with George Harrison. The interviews with Elliot Mintz are OK, but I would have preferred more actual footage of Lennon. They show some footage from his 1971 concert and much backstage material and interviews. There is plenty of information and film of the aftermath of his tragic assassination and the rivers of tears that produced. The years of the Beatles are covered, but not in any great depth. Get the Anthology for more in-depth material on the Fab Four. In short, a lovely film about one of the cultural icons of the 20th century. If you love John Lennon, get this film.
"John Lennon, the guiding spirit of The Beatles, dead tonight at 40."
Those immortal words at the end of the movie bring tears to everyone who was a fan of John Lennon. I remember hearing and seeing that news report from a hospital bed at 6 years old. It was and always will be a tragic memory. The man who resurfaced after a 5 year absence with a powerhouse of music destined for new life had been cut short just a few hours after an interview where he said:
"My work won't be finished until I'm dead and buried. And I hope that's a long, long time."
The long time was 2-3 hours.
The movie is an intimate portrait of Lennon's life and legacy. It exposes the chaos behind the myth, as well as the genius behind the man. With all the tales from friends, associates, Paul, George, Ringo, and George Martin on "The Beatles Anthology," this one focuses on Lennon's life in his own words and home videos. Taken directly from the archives of the man himself, there has never been a better documentary on Lennon. From Liverpool beginnings to the end in New York City, watch the boy become a superstar, the superstar into a man, and the man become a legend.
Remember John Lennon 1940 - 1980

However, I purchased this DVD some two days ago but reserved it's playing until today. I had previously owned a PAL VHS copy so I was very happy to own the DVD. As others have stated this is a warts and all documentary with the narration by Lennon, in his own write as it were, culled from hundreds of hours of interviews. It is a poignant reminder of the meteoric and historic rise and fall of one of the most charismatic of four Liverpool lads forging their own path through the music business in the 1950's. While the film itself has been much documented it is the features of this edition which are new but to me they are merely a side issue here.
This DVD keeps the man and his music in the public purview and tribute must be paid to the work of Yoko Ono who has stood fast behind his legacy, personal, public and musically. It can be argued, as others have done, that the features on this disc do little to justify the "deluxe" tag which I feel is a little unfair. Certainly from the sound and picture point of view it is much cleared up and sounds a whole lot better than it does on my video copy.
For most people who buy this documentary, the features will be of relatively little import although there are some out there, and I include myself in this category, who will pore over every word and picture. I will admit however, that the previously unreleased live rendition of Imagine is an essential for fans who continue to anxiously await the next rare release.
For the conspiracy theorists out there, there is much more than a coincidence about the slew of releases of media material in the last thirteen weeks from the various ex-beatle camps, but this really does mark the handover of generations to younger people for whom the Beatles and Sixties have little or no meaning. Musicians today have much to thank the group for in the pathbreaking , one could say buccaneer, way they changed the music business.
Imagine is a fine testament to the career of a man who led the way in many areas and who will continue to be mourned by millions. Let us not forget his championship of peace and the underdog especially at this time of year.
To absent friends...
For those who have nerver seen this documentary, I'll just say that it's one of the best ever made about a music artist. The basis is 240 hours of film and videotape, from various interviews and personal Lennon/Ono collection, all edited and compiled to make a 106 minutes document that is the definitive Lennon biography (as shown by the fact that it was made in 1988, and I don't think anybody ever dared to argue that it was "incomplete") covering his entire life. But let's get this straight: this biography isn't exhaustive, or full of details. Even so, in the end we get the feeling that we have a complete picture of the kind of person that John was, and his ideas.
The most impressive thing for me is the absence of a main narrator. The story is carried by the images and the interviews, given by Lennon himself, and the people that were close to him. Therefore, there's no definitive judgment about his life and works. You become a witness, so you can make your own conclusions.
The feature is in WIDESCREEN and Dolby Digital Stereo. Since it's a documentary, it has a great amount of musical bits and performances, but not in a complete form.
I really didn't find nothing special in the extras as to call this DVD a "Deluxe Edition". They are a few extras that you normally would expect on a DVD release:
-John Lennon Trivia Track. It consists in a SUBTITLE option, that will give you, throughout the movie, relevant information that might be of interest for you. As you would expect with any trivia, it deals with everything, from facts of John's life, information about the making of the movie, historical facts, etc.
-A tribute to John Lennon. A 15 minute special with interviews of the filmmakers. Though some information is interesting, most of this extra feels as more of the same of what the movie already contains
-Truth be told. A 1971, 5:30 minutes John and Yoko interview by the BBC, about a limited topic: sex and relationships in young people and the pop music.
-Accoustic IMAGINE: the most valuable extra, it's a performance of the trademark song with Lennon and 2 musicians more, only with guitar. A taste of what "John Lennon unplugged" would have been. It's a one camera take, filmed very close, from one side.
-Never-before-seen island house footage from Tittenhurst Estate. An unedited home video. Not much going on.
-The Headmaster look back. A short interview with William Ernest Pobjoy, headmaster of Lennon's grammar school, in which he remembers John's school days. This extra also feels as more of the same of what the movie contains.
-John Lennon Music Guide. A DVD ROM only feature, it's an alphabetical archive of Lennon's (and Beatles) songs, with a little information about each one, like year, album, composer, and cover versions. It would have been very good to include some lines about inspiration or meaning of the songs, but there's nothing like that.
CONCLUSION: I'm quite satisfied with this release, since the feature itself is reason enough to have it. It was about time this documentary was available on DVd once again.
