THE BEATLES: EIGHT DAYS A WEEK supplies a month-by-month account of the band's brief tenure as a live band. Predictably full of great performing footage and incorporating new interviews with the too-few surviving witnesses...

Rating: 4/5 -- This doc isn't pretending to be anything but hagiographic, but despite its obvious fandom, it does a great job of reminding us just how ground breaking and popular the Beatles really were. Full Review

It's no surprise that a documentary on the Beatles and their music is a treat, but the fact that it is not an unalloyed pleasure is a bit unexpected.

[Howard seems] as if he were intent on making a film for anyone who tuned in to The Ed Sullivan Show in 1964, fell in love with the four adorable mop tops and regrets all the long-haired plonking about with sitars that came later. Full Review

Rating: 4/5 -- For those of us who can remember, it's a deliriously evocative nostalgia trip, as well as a timely reminder of more spontaneous times. Full Review

Rating: 2.9/5 -- Like most documentaries Howard has made it's fine, if rather unnecessary. Full Review

The Beatles now belong to an honored past, stuck there like an obelisk, and yet here they are, alive-busting out all over, time and time again. Yeah, yeah, yeah. Full Review

Product Description:

Director Ron Howard (RUSH, APOLLO 13) takes a look back at the years when the Beatles were still a touring band, from their early performances in Europe in 1963 to their decision in 1966 to quit playing publicly in order to focus on their work in the studio. This documentary features archival footage of the Beatles' legendary concerts, as well as interviews with surviving band members Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr, and famous fans such as Whoopi Goldberg, Sigourney Weaver, and Elvis Costello.
