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!
- 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.)
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.
