The Beatles: Magical Mystery Tour

Overview

After the success of the Sgt. Peppers LP, the Beatles decided to hire a psychedelic bus, take a trip into the English countryside, and film the results, no matter how bizarre or boring. With a motley cast of characters, the group basically tramps about the landscape with occasional music cues to give the film a bit of flow. Though Magical Mystery Tour is an interesting document of the Beatles psychedelic period, its cinematic function is negligible.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Kryssa Schemmerling
After the wild success of A Hard Day's Night and Help!, the Beatles's music began moving in a more mind-expanding direction, and The Magical Mystery Tour, their third film, reflects that change. "Trippy" is the word that best describes this psychedelic extravaganza. Leaving conventional plot behind, this picaresque tale follows the Fab Four and assorted oddball companions as they travel the English countryside in a magic bus. Pulsating with bright colors and filled with bizarre imagery, this 50-minute film -- produced and directed by the Beatles themselves for British television -- functions as a kind of proto-music video for the slew of great songs that grace its soundtrack.
