The criminal activities of the Nixon administration when John and Yoko became just a tad too popular with the young. Interesting clips from their t.v. and concdrt appearances and interviews with old FBI agents - especially as some of them seemed to have realised that what they were doing was immoral as well as illegal. Lennon's "Jesus" comment sparked off actual burnings of Beatle's records posters etc. Reminiscent of the old black and white footage of pre WW2 book burnings in Germany.
Very interesting doco about the anti Vietnam War years in the US. Shows where a lot of John Lennon's songs came from.
A well made documentary which gives interesting insight into the US Governments attempts to deport John Lennon, who loved New York and was bent on making his home there. This was during Nixon's period as President and shows the lengths his agencies went to create evidence for the express purpose of his deportation. What I found fascinating was the various political movements which also felt Lennon was a worthwhile public figurehead for their political purposes and how careful he had to be not to be exploited. Included is some private home film footage of Yoko and a very young Sean. This is a very engaging and informative docomentary.
Great documentary, sad to see what they tried to do to such an inspirational person
Great doco. I didnt know a lot about John Lennon, being a bit younger, but wow. What a truly inspirational man!! The movie gets a bit tedious and repetitive in the last 30 mins or so, but all round very interesting and engaging.
Very good documentary with lots of interview footage of John and Yoko.
OK doco. Didn't really tell me anything I hadn't heard before. Still, it is about John Lennon which is cool.
Wow. Very informative; what an amazing man. Stays with you.
What a fascinating time!!! People were engaged and enraged with the system and people like John Lennon were trying to wake everyone else up!!! What a hero, what a king in my eyes!!
"All we are saying... Is give peace a chance". This was a great documentary with lots of good information and videos of lennon and his friends. He was a revolutionary, and I have no doubt if he was alive today, the world would be a different place. I came away from this film thinking... The world needs another John Lennon
Interesting biopic of Lennon's battle with USA Immigration over his ability to stay & live in the USA. While there's little new in terms of footage from the man himself (much of this has been trawled over numerous times), the strength of this comes from the interviews with friends & other interested parties on both sides of the fence. Well worth a look.
I was never a big fan of John Lennon but this movie gave me a new insight of him and Yoko. I was very impressed with what it showed me about John Lennon and how it confirmed what I already knew about the American government/FBI.
A excellent documentary on why the US thought Lennon was a threat and proves just how 'artists' can change the world.
Pity there was no mention of his other son, Julian.
Interesting doco of the controversy surrounding Lennon and his time in the States. Gave me a new perspective on Yoko. His music is used well throughout and shows the corruption of the government, which I'm sure has stopped now...
Interesting and very informative, though the facts seems little one sided.
A well researched and presented view of Lennons love-hate relationship with the US. He loved the country but hated the government, and this shows the depths to which the US government was prepared to go to silence Lennons rather naive voice.
