Film Review: “De-constructing The Beatles – Rubber Soul” and winners!

The husband and I took a night off to go out to dinner and movie. This time we were lucky enough to have a Beatles themed flick playing one town over from us.

Deconstructing The Beatles is the brain child of musicologist and Beatles scholar Scott Freiman. He’s made four ‘Deconstructing’ films so far that are showing around the country. You can find out if any of them are playing near you on the website. Before I give my thoughts, here’s the trailer for this film:

 

 

I’ve seen several great Beatles experts who do lectures similar to this one…Kenneth Womack and Walter Everett come to mind and if you’ve ever been lucky enough to see either of these Beatles experts’ lectures, you’re sure to love this film. Scott Freiman literally walks his audience through each day of the 30 days the Beatles had to record their Rubber Soul album. What songs they recorded on what days, what instruments where used on each song, the tracks used, etc.. An amazing process to experience that just about any Beatles fan is sure to enjoy. In fact, I’m going to need to go back and find out where I can go to see the first three Deconstructing films about the White Album, Sgt. Peppers and Revolver. And for that reason…

I rate this film, 4 out of 4 Beetles!
