The US vs. John Lennon (2006)

Hi everyone... I highly recommend the documentary film The U.S. vs. John Lennon (2006). I rented the film this past week from Blockbuster.

I believe John Lennon is one of those unique and inspiring individuals - artist, intellectual, and activist - who will live forever, and always be remembered as a great part of the world's history. The footage of him alone (which is fairly extensive) in this film is beautiful and uplifting. If only we had artists and people today, who were this vocal, political, unpretentious, and fearless... (I'm sure some will mention Bono of U2, but in my opinion he and several in the Hollywood establishment do not have the same charisma, nor the intellect to match John's. They've also allowed themselves to be marginalized to the far left by the media and the government.) There are many parallels between Vietnam and the current war in Iraq... but the activist spirit of the late 60s and 70s seems to have dissipated in our American-Idol world.

Enjoy these clips and spread the word!
