Where’s the Revolution?

theusvsjohnlennon.jpg The U.S. vs. John Lennon caught my attention a couple of weeks ago and I was able to drag Jay to see it last night.  It was the only local showing (so far, I hope) and I’m glad I didn’t miss it.  I hope it’s playing widely elsewhere.

This is an excellent documentary about Lennon’s anti-war activism, told from a variety of perspectives, both liberal (the term “radical activist” pops up a lot) and not-so-liberal (G. Gordon Liddy, looking slimy as ever).  Combined with Lennon’s music and some wonderful film clips, it’s a glimpse into a the life of an amazing, creative mind. 

What intrigued me (maybe “creeped me out” is a better phrase) the most about the film was the parallels they make between Nixon/Vietnam and Bush/Iraq.  Some of the things Nixon said are eerily familiar… is history repeating itself?

Give peace a chance.
