Review by Guillermo
PROG REVIEWER
3 stars I think that The Beatles were lucky to have some very talented people working with them: George Martin as producer; Brian Epstein as manager (despite some years later it was discovered that he didn`t do some things in the right way in the band`s interests), film director Richard Lester, etc.

I think that this film was a very original idea to show a band to their fans. It shows the lives of the members of the band while working hard during a day. It shows the members of the band in a natural way, being themselves, showing their charismatic personalities, doing and telling jokes, with each one having special funny scenes wrote for them despite not being really trained actors. It also served to the band to promote new songs along with some not very old songs from previous albums. While Elvis Presley was shown in some of his films trying to act characters, The Beatles in this film were shown as being themselves, and it is really a very original and good film, in my opinion. It also influenced some musicians to form bands (one of them was The Byrds as David Crosby said in one interview).

Filmed in Black and White. Their next film Help! was in Colour, but it is the only one of their films which I still have not seen.

3 stars The best Beatles movie AHDN has become a cult late night classic, and has played many theatres worldwide. The main drawcard is it depicts the Beatles in their heyday, when everything was going well for the band and it is a slice of the swinging 60s. There are quintessential Beatles galore on this classic, namely A Hard Day's Night, I Should Have Known Better, If I Fell and Can't Buy Me Love. Don't Bother Me is a great moment of the film as is And I Love Her.

The film works as a kind of glorified film clip for the band and the way that the Beatles jump and run everywhere shows the vibrant energy of the youth culture. Richard Lester directs the band just being themselves. The scenes where they sprint from adoring female fans and then disguise themselves became a trademark and was used endlessly in the animated series. There are concert bits, studio pieces and actual film clips of the band at their best; it is one of the best records of the band and footage from AHDN has been used many times in Beatles specials and documentaries.

They all enjoy themselves on this, they mock the press and everyone they come into contact with, acting like everything is a joke, and the storyline is so convoluted I can't even remember what the heck it is all about. It does not matter as the only reason to watch this is to see The Beatles bouncing from one silly encounter to the next. Some of the imagery, such as the band bouncing on trampolines, and running into each other at a park are unforgettable. Special Features are only a bonus as the film itself is well worth getting hold of. It is a product of its time and could have had 30 minutes trimmed as there's so much padding out, and it is for collectors so tread gently through this piece of nostalgia.

4 stars This is an exciting blend of part-fiction with comedy, and it has The Beatles in it. Yes, it is a very enjoyable film. John: "He's a nice old man, isn't he?" Paul: [nodding] "He is very clean." That's just something to see, not just read. Also, if you want to see the girls chasing th ... (read more)

3 stars I have always enjoyed this movie. The Beatles seemed to be having a great time making this film. I really enjoy good old Wilfred Brambell in this. All the music is good and the performances are good as well. Is there a real story here? Well, sorta. But does anyone really care? It's the Beatle ... (read more)
