5.0 out of 5 stars excellent, 3 Oct 2006
This review is from: The Beatles - A Hard Day's Night [1964] [DVD] (DVD)
A Hard Days Night is a film starring the beatles as the beatles and directed by richard lester and was released in 1964 at the height of beatlemania,the film has a mockumentary feel to it and is indeed scripted,but the film also has a real feel to it as this was a mirror image of what it would have been like to have been a beatle.

The film also contains some great songs that featured on the album a hard days night,the film is very lighthearted in style but still you get the feeling that the band were prisoners of their own fame,they were thrown around by management between interview after interview,tour after tour and chased by fans who could have killed them with kindness,the opening scene where the band are chased is of course scripted but hardly far from reality,and when george falls and the remaining members are in stitches,that is truly a classic scene and is actually an accident.

The film was shot in 16 weeks as the studio thought that beatlemania wouldnt last beyone 1964,what a bunch of melons they are for thinking that and shot in black and white to contain the budget.

The film has a plot but nothing startling but the film is funny and each member reveals himself to be funny,odd and eccentric in their own way.If you say that the beatles are your band then you need this,my sister aint a fan as such but she love this film,its soundtrack and kooky charm.
