John Lennon: Love Is All You Need (2010)

*** (out of 4)

If you're looking for a masterpiece of a documentary or a film that's going to feature all around great interviews and information then this here certainly won't be for you. However, if you've seen countless documentaries on The Beatles and Lennon and you just want more then you'll probably want to check this thing out. While you're not going to see anything you haven't seen before or learn anything you don't know, this documentary is at least entertaining and gives one a pretty good overview of the life of Lennon. We hear about his early rebel days, him getting into music from his mother, the early bands and of course the creation of The Beatles. From here we learn about some of their biggest moments and a large portion of the film takes a look at the backlash after Lennon commented on Jesus. We also get to follow him through the break-up years and finally his death. Overall LOVE IS ALL YOU NEED is a pretty good film that manages to keep you entertained. If you've never seen a documentary on Lennon then this here really wouldn't be that bad of a place to start because it has some very good archival footage and it at least gives one a great idea of who the man was. The biggest problem here is that there's not any music, which of course is a big negative. Another problem is that we really don't get too many interviews with those close to him in later years, although there are some nice interviews with people who knew him early on including his first wife.
