- Why couldn’t God make me Elvis?
- Cause he was saving you for John Lennon.
Even though I’ve been caught up in school work and other things I still manage to find time to
watch a film or two each week, just so that I can finish my film list before the end of this year.
I have quite a lot of posts like this to write but I felt like posting them all at once would be rather
boring, so let’s start with this one.
I’ve heard quite a lot about this film, not so much that it actually made me want to watch it right
ahead. I didn’t really expect much, I just knew that it was a film about John Lennon and a part of
his life. Before the film I was a Beatles listener, I have a few of their songs on my ipod and I listen
to them once in a while but I cannot say that I had fallen that deeply in love with them until I actually
watched this and now a lot of their songs has more meaning to me than they had before.
I have always loved the song ”Julia”, mostly because, well it’s my name and who doesn’t like a song
with their name in it, but also because I now sort of know the real purpose of the song.
I’ve always kind of liked Paul most of all the Beatles members, as well as Ringo’s humor but I have
to admit I never really got so in to John and I really don’t know why. This film sort of changed that though.
Of course this film might not show the actual truth and has its own interpretation of what he might have
been like, but still, my feelings changed a lot after this and I found myself listen to their songs a lot more
now. If you haven’t seen this yet, you really should. I’m madly in love with the fashion in this film and
the music of course. But the film takes part around 1950’s, so that tells a lot. Also, I have to say that
Aaron, who plays the main character as John Lennon, looks extremely good on ”Greaser” fashion, or
should just say 50’s fashion, hihi.
This film is really great in a lot of ways and I have to say that I sat throughout the whole film in some
sort of coma and all I could focus on was to watch. That’s how much I like it. So go and check it out!
