    Engrossing Retrospective on John Lennon

    Stimulating documentary tells the story of John Lennon in America. Shows and gives us a feel for what was going on politically in America at the time and the feelings of Americans (not just Lennon). There is a lot of stuff in here that makes you feel like Lennon took on the US and we're better because of it. History buffs may or may not believe what they see. Bonus material is interesting, but more of the same, extending out the documentary and expounding on it.

    The Truth Comes Out...Finally

    This documentary is one of the most interesting I've seen. The ex-government employees being interviewed tell a lot as to what really happened during the Nixon administration. Very relevant to what is currently happening in our country. All of the people interviewed are amazing. I encourage people to watch this one! We need more John Lennon's/Yoko Ono's right now. What a brave couple to speak out and act out for Peace. So sorry that his life ended too early. Give Peace A Chance Today!

    A Voice of Passion for Peace

    Lennon was like no other in the world of Pop music. As a writer and artist he pushed Pop music, and in particular Pop lyrics into an entirely new areana of possibilities, but this film centers on a far more important aspect of his character, and certainly more relevant today than any song could ever hope to do. Up until this film, there hasn't been anything that really addressed this facet of his peronality, and certainly none that displays the engaging passion he possesed for peace and justice. It must be sad for the generation of the 60's to see what has been happening in our country these past few years. Watching our current politicians use the same dogmatic phrases about patriotism and freedom that were used to prosecute and justify the Vietnam war. It must chill to the bone. In the 27 years since his death, there has never been a better time for Americans of all ages to see and feel the passion this man had for America. Not the imperialistic leanings that have dominated our American political scene these past few years, but for the ideals of justice and fairness that were written into our constitution. That is what this film is all about. Even if you don't agree with many of his positions, you cannot watch this film without gaining a high level of respect for Lennon as a man.
