Editorial Reviews

This incredible documentary features in-depth contributions from wives Yoko Ono and Cynthia Lennon, son Julian Lennon and many previously unseen interviews with John himself. Through rare footage, we learn of his rise to fame with The Beatles, his divorce from Cynthia, his first meeting with Yoko, split-up of the band, and his decision to become a solo artist and advocate for world peace. Lennon: Love is All You Need captures one of the most influential musicians of the twentieth century with some truly unique interviews and unseen footage from those closest to him.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well Done May 5, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Just saw this on the Bio channel and was surprised and delighted that it was just released on DVD. They show many of the interviews that we have seen before except they are longer. We can see and hear John talking about his immigration outside the court room and it goes on for much longer than the typical sound bites we are used too. Same with his meeting Pierre Trudeau in Canada when he was filmed walking the garden. What we have all seen before is not shown but what we haven't seen is here. New footage of Yoko and her newest art are presented.
Old footage, again more, of Cynthia and Julian discussing John. Old girlfriends, pre Beatles, early Beatles, etc.
For $6.99 it is a very good documentary and it should be stated, and known, the images are not perfect as it is the 50's thru the 80's but exceptable.
SUMMARY: Informative, entertaining, and sad!

5.0 out of 5 stars John Lennon: Love Is All You Need November 8, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
A very good, insightful documentary. You see and hear John Lennon growing into a man of peace and love. He never lost his charm, quick wit, or youth, but he became more centered as he deliberately moved into a new realm of life with Yoko. There are many interviews of John, and thoughtful interviews with his first wife Cynthia, and his first son. John Lennon always said what he honestly thought, which was refreshing then and even more so now. This film portrays these aspects of John Lennon as he grew in purpose and courage when he resided in New York and spoke out fearlessly for peace. He was learning the art of living love. Who knows what he may have imparted to us had he been here longer. A must have DVD for those who love John Lennon.

3.0 out of 5 stars Decent, but too much missing info February 29, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I liked the John Lennon parts of this documentary, where he speaks for himself. But I have to drop the rating down two stars not for what's there, but for what's missing:

- Who the heck are some of the people who are speaking so authoritatively about Lennon? While we're given the interviewees names, we're not given their relationship to Lennon or the reason why we should take their information as any more valid than that of, say, any fan.

- Where is Sean? He barely gets a mention.

- No detail at all about what Lennon did in the time from 1975-1980, except fight for his right to stay in the U.S. He had some rough challenges to overcome in that time, but they're not mentioned at all.

For me, this was a decent documentary and worth watching, but not really worth owning. (Oh, and the second "bonus interview" lasts literally three seconds before it cuts out. Maybe I'll just return it as defective.)

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow! What a great little documentary! March 2, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I was actually impressed with the documentary I got for such a low price (less than $5 from the seller I went through). The video quality is decent and the documentary looks professional. There are loads of interviews featuring John Lennon, Cynthia, Yoko, Julian, and even Paul and George (no Ringo).

Having the sort of interests I do, I was particularly impressed by Julian's mention of his grandfather's ghost protecting him during an auto accident and his father's promise to attempt to perform a particular action should he ever prematurally expire.

There are two seeming "experts" on John Lennon and the Beatles with commentary throughout the documentary, and as other reviewers mentioned, you really have no idea who they are or from whence their "authority" comes, but so long as you are intelligent enough to recognize this it is not an issue.

If you can grab "John Lennon: Love Is All You Need" for $5 or less do it! You will not be upset that you did.

2.0 out of 5 stars Nothing new, digs at Yoko September 28, 2012
Format:DVD
I am a huge John Lennon fan and I'll put up with a lot of repetition of old stuff to see anything new. This video is a let down, with a lot of chippiness and digs at Yoko that I frankly don't want to hear. And it goes on way too long about the 'Beatles are more popular than Christ' incident. I wish I hadn't bothered with it. Don't waste your money.

5.0 out of 5 stars Slightly Enlightening September 14, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I was happy to see that Cynthia and Julian Lennon were included in this video. There has been so little footage of Cynthia and she is a lovely, open minded and big hearted woman with a new point of view that we haven't heard until now.

5.0 out of 5 stars John Lennon Fans Will Love It! February 2, 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I saw some things in this documentary that I have not seen in others so if you are a fan of John Lennon then you ought to check it out. I have a couple of John Lennon's bio's on DVD and this one by far is a keeper for me. I'll be watching this DVD over and over again for years to come.
