Movie Reviews

An intellectual look at the Beatles
Timothy S. Coffey | 01/14/2009
(4 out of 5 stars)

"I was truly impressed by this review of the Beatles music, feeling the impact of their music to this day. Had to laugh at some of the comments of these experts on occasion, though, as some of the songs were just plain simple songs that were written on the sly, with no real intent to have all of these multiple meanings.

Still, it was refreshing to hear these insiders look at the songs from their vantage. If you want an intellectual lift on your favorite Beatles music, I highly recommend this informative DVD."
Excellent documentary!

"There are many mediocre to really bad Beatles retrospectives and documentaries out there and unfortunately, I own many of them. Composing The Beatles Songbook, however, is not one of them. The panel is first rate: people who were close friends of the Beatles during the sixties and people who are "experts" on the Beatles and their music. I particularly like the diversity of opinions on the panel. Some seem more partial to Paul's style and some seem more partial to John's style so it's not biased towards either of them. If you're a serious fan of the Beatles' music, you have to check out this series!"
