Several weeks ago I received and email from WGBH/PBS in Boston asking if I would take the time to mention their upcoming release of Lennon Naked on my website. They also asked if I would like a preview copy of the movie prior to writing about it. It only made sense since this is a review website.
It would seem that 90% of this film is about John Lennon’s anger management abilities. It’s as if the people behind the making of the movie researched every moment and every issue Lennon had and put it on film without regard for the happy or joyful times in his life. According to Lennon Naked all John Lennon did was walk around angry and I believe they should rename this film to “Lennon Pissed-Off”.
My personal message to Robert Jones (writer): Dude….Give Peace a Chance! ☮
The one good point I found is the acting in the film is wonderful. And though I’m not a Yoko Ono fan, I did find Naoko Mori‘s portrayal ofYoko to be excellent!
I don’t know that I can criticize the details that they present in this movie. I didn’t walk away with the impression that they took too many liberties with the truth, though they do have a disclaimer before the movie started saying that some parts have been fictionalized.
Lennon Naked will debut on PBS on Sunday, November 21, 2010. You can go to PBS.org and check your zip code for dates and times that Lennon Naked will be playing on your local station.
As always, I look forward to my readers responses and opinions.
I rate this movie: 1 out of 4 Beetles
