This is a rare insight into the mood of John Lennon in 1969, with the imminent break up of The Beatles and his relationship with Yoko Ono in full force. Filmed at the Toronto Rock and Revival Festival, director D.A. Pennebaker (the mind behind the iconic Bob Dylan portrait Don’t Look Back) captures an incredible historical record of the time, with performances by Jerry Lee Lewis, Little Richard, and Bo Diddley. However the most fascinating is a performance by John Lennon and the Plastic Ono Band, whose popularity was so low at the time that the audience booed.
