You like the Beatles? You like classic Rock 'N Roll? Well if you're reading this you've stumbled to the right place. The Beatles At Their Best is an independent Music Documentary from writer / director Shaun Phillips. And it's great! This short doc is better than most of the made for TV ones that I've seen on... well... TV.
We all know the story of the Beatles, or think we do. This little film fills in some of the missing gaps and it's done very well. The footage you see during the film is all public, so there's nothing really special about the footage itself. The way it's put together? This is where the video shines. Everything seems to fit and flow, and it's woven together so well you forget that it's simply a collection of public footage. Add to that Shaun Phillips great narration and you've got yourself a winner.
Bottom line? If you love Rock or The Beatles you'll love this film. However, it was so entertaining that I think you'd watch even if you hated the Devils music. LOL.
Overall, I'm going to go out on a limb here and give The Beatles At Their Best a perfect score! Maybe it's because I love music or maybe... just maybe... It's that damn good. And, I'd like to say in closing.... great wordplay on the title.
