This Beatles doc will surprise you, even if you think you’ve seen it all. In personal footage from the height of Beatlemania, John, Paul, George, and Ringo, give their takes on their hysterical fans and how hard (and addictive) it was to get used to it all. Director Ron Howard explores how post-JFK, Jim Crow America fell in love with the boys from Liverpool, and how they maintained their senses of humor and (relative) sanity over years of touring the world. The film accompanies the Beatles (and some of their famous fans) up until the final moments of performance fatigue, when, as John put it, The Beatles started to become “the show and not the music”.
*And stick with it through the closing credits for a few more moments with the Beatles.
