Pic reunites the former Beatle with director Richard Lester, who helmed A Hard Day’s Night and Help! There’s none of those mid-1960s pics’ groundbreaking elan here. By MTV standards, this is somewhere in a stone age. Lester mostly lets the powerful songs (half Beatles classics) speak for themselves, crosscutting between fans mouthing the lyrics and Macca & Co. on stage.
