The Beatles: Eight Days a Week-The Touring Years

beatles_posterDocumentary; Rated NR;  2016. Directed by Ron Howard. 

A compilation of found footage featuring music, interviews and stories of the Beatles 250 concerts from 1963 to 1966.

“Eight Days a Week” plays nicely enough: the mostly uptempo Side A of a well-stocked greatest hits album, as it were. Howard has enlisted McCartney and drummer Ringo Starr (lovably goofy as ever) to give lively on-screen accounts of their early (mis)adventures in celebrity: “By the end it became quite complicated, but at the beginning, things were really simple,” McCartney says cheerfully, summing up the film’s tonal inclinations in a nutshell.
