Superb job on this film....A MUST BUY for all hardcore Beatles fans !
At the end of the film, along with a special segment showing the entire Shea Stadium concert - - all of us gray hairs stood up and applauded ! Even a few of the younger folks in the audience joined in !! So much fun.....BUY THIS ! :)
Couple of comments: this documentary is directed by none other than Ron Howard, with the full cooperation of Paul, Ringo and the Lennon and Harrison estates. Howard and his team must have roamed the earth to come up with all of the fantastic footage, and make some pointed comments along the way (the Beatles had a contractual provision prohibiting segregated shows in the South, a remarkable stand considering the circumstances). The sound quality has been painstakingly remastered as best as possible. As a lifelong Beatles fan who was too young to have seen them in person or fully appreciate what all took place half a century ago, this movie is sheer delight from start to finish. The theater version came with a 30 min. bonus feature immediately after the end titles, namely "The Beatles At Shea Stadium", their set from August 15, 1965. It absolutely blows the mind what happened there. Watching the crowd is as much fun as it is watching the guys. Here again, the old footage has been restored and remastered.
"Eight Days a Week - The Touring Years" opened this weekend on a single screen for all of Greater Cincinnati, at my local art-house theater. I couldn't wait to see it. The Saturday matinee screening where I saw this at was PACKED to the rafters, to my surprise and delight. On my way out of the theater, there was already a long line waiting for the next screening. It seems this movie is hitting a nerve, and this has the looks to be a solid success on the art-house theater circuit. If you love the Beatles, you do not want to miss this. "Eight Days a Week - The Touring Years" is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
"Eight Days A Week- The Touring Years" by Ron Howard captures the excitement of the early 60's and phenomenon of The Beatles and the start of the "British Invasion" which took America by storm. The lads have incredible charisma and their catchy melodies and lyrics make for compelling viewing. When you look at the catalog of the band it's remarkable how prolific Lennon and McCartney were turning out hit after hit. The performance are raw, the Fab 4 on stage in matching suits with their instruments, none of the overproduced stage shows that modern artists seem to require today...The Beatles needed none of that. This film captures the magic of the era and a working class band that's influence on modern music continues to this day. Whether for a nostalgic trip back to that time for some viewers or for younger audiences curious what all the hype was about this flick is highly recommended.
