Stryder sent me a YouTube link to a music video called "Across the Universe", with Joe Cocker singing "Come Together". It's directed by Julie Taymor, who is also known as costume director for the Broadway musical, "The Lion King." Taymor has won two Tonys out of four nominations, and an Emmy, so she's definitely a force to be reckoned with.
"Across the Universe" is also a movie, directed by Taymor. It is the story of a group of friends finding their way through the minefield that was the 1960's. Love, war, activism. All set to a Beatles soundtrack. Could be worse. In addition, Stryder said the movie was excellent. As did the person who posted the comment on the imdb site. My sense is that the movie is not for everyone, but that it will rock those who lived through the period. I just added it to my Netflix queue, and moved it to the top. At the rate I'm going through movies, it would probably be a year before I got to it, otherwise.
Meanwhile, get your fix watching this great video.
