Might interest some of you....

The U.S. vs. John Lennon (12A)

Director: David Leaf, John Scheinfeld Origin: United States Year: 2006 Duration: 109 Starring: Gore Vidal, Yoko Ono, Noam Chomsky

The evangelical storm that greeted The Beatles in America after Lennon observed that they were bigger than Jesus might have made him think twice before making provocative statements again. Yet, after the mop-tops split and Lennon married artist Yoko Ono, he indulged in bed-ins and bagism, moved to New York and hung out with self-proclaimed revolutionaries, and openly criticised America's military campaign in Vietnam. The American establishment was so worried about his popularity and influence that it initiated a campaign to silence him. With fantastic archive footage and insightful interviews with those who knew Lennon well, THE U.S. VS. JOHN LENNON tells the story of how the FBI and Nixon's government were so rattled by an iconic advocate for peace that they sought to have him deported.

Meant to be good, but I've given up on going to see documentaries at the cinema given that they all seem to end up on More 4 within 6 months.
