Movie Reviews

Great documentary

(5 out of 5 stars)

"This documentary gives the viewer the chance to see firsthand what went on during John and Yoko's honeymoon bed-in for peace (the type of nontraditional honeymoon I'd love to have myself!) and their pro-peace activities during the rest of 1969. We see a lot of the people they met with (such as Canadian PM Pierre Trudeau and Rabbi Abraham Feinberg), people who became allies of theirs as well as people who deliberately tried to provoke them. I was also delighted to see the footage of Yoko's daughter Kyoko. Overall it really serves to recreate the hopeful mood of the late Sixties, when people believed anything was possible and believed their voices could make a difference. John and Yoko didn't care if people thought they were freaks or naïve, since they had a powerful message to get across, and the public exposure they were guaranteed as celebrities would make a much larger audience of people tune in to their message and get inspired to work for change themselves. And as we see, during that sadly brief time, it did seem as though the world were listening, people were actively campaigning for world peace and an end to the Vietnam War (and all other wars), and world peace really seemed like it would happen very soon. Till the very end of his life, John believed that love and peace were eternal instead of some cliché from the Sixties. As he says in footage near the end of the documentary, world peace isn't impossible or unobtainable. It's as simple as people the world over deciding they want peace. As soon as enough people want it, it can happen. The late Sixties might seem like a dated joke to some people today, but even though clothing styles and other fashions have changed, the basic premise has not. This is a powerful message that's chillingly just as relevant today as it was back in 1969."
