This is a hard one to review. It doesn’t have a narrative per se, it’s more like an extended montage of the Beatles’ history. That’s not a bad thing at all, but it seemed a little, I don’t know, disappointing? Anyways, the editing was top notch and I especially enjoyed the songs you used and how you veered away from chronologically going through songs. The slideshow interludes between songs was great!
As a musical montage, it’s excellent. As a short story on film, not so much. (Maybe I’m overthinking it and it’s not meant to be a “short story on film” but whatever.)
