This is a documentary about Lennon and McCartney in the 1970s. It’s a complex and intimate story.
To watch this docufilm. first,you have to know about advancements in technology which have greatly enhanced our ability to compile and cross-reference research material (video, audio, bootlegs, print sources) since the events in the film occurred.
Today, we can develop a much more well-rounded story than we could in the 70s, and ALL of this information: John’s and Paul’s words, actions AND their music must be viewed holistically to get a full picture of what took place. (source YouTube – by breathless345)
Second, it’s imperative to look at this information critically, even if -especially if- it challenges established myths and stereotypes. In the midst of a deeply emotional separation, it’s common for the people involved to spin the story in a face-saving manner. But it’s also extremely irresponsible to perpetuate a historical narrative built almost entirely on the calculated public statements of the wounded parties.
