A day in the life of the Beatles.

A Marx Brothers movie, minus the wit (not that there's no wit - just relative to a Marx Brothers movie), crossed with a concert film, shot like an art film. I was only vaguely entertained while watching it, but after some reflection, there really is a lot to appreciate about it. There's a remarkable amount of texture in the photography. Thanks to that and the faux-documentary style, no matter how dumb the movie gets, there's always something interesting to look at. It's very easy to overlook the design work, having grown up long after this movie's time. Everything is so damn iconic that I couldn't help taking it all for granted while I was watching it.
