Presumably, the Beatles episode of Tony Palmer‘s pop music documentary series is included as part of Hot Docs’s Palmer retrospective because it was John Lennon who suggested the All You Need Is Love project to Palmer in the first place.

Unfortunately, there’s very little here for Beatles aficionados that we haven’t seen before, especially since Ron Howard’s recent Eight Days A Week, his very thorough doc on the band’s rise.

There’s only one insightful sequence: a reporter talks to Lennon the day after manager Brian Epstein committed suicide. Lennon, obviously shell-shocked, can barely speak.

For Beatles completists only.
