Across The Universe!

Since I’m on a “Beatles” kick…

I’m not much for musical films, but Across The Universe is a favorite that I can watch over & over again. The film is directed by Julie Taymor, and is set against the backdrop of both music from The Beatles & the Vietnam War. The film focuses on the romance between an upper-class American girl and a poor Liverpudlian artist.

This film has amazing renditions of The Beatles’ songs, including, “Something,” “Across the Universe,” “Helter Skelter,” & “All You Need Is Love.”

This is one of the most stunning movies I have seen. It is so creative and beautifully done.

This film does delve into the trippy aspects of the 60’s, which includes drug use. Fair warning that those scenes are kind of crazy & mind-bending. Overall, though, I think this film has a lot to offer. Just keep an open mind as to the era & culture back then. 😉
