Julie Taymor certainly has chutzpah. I wonder if she knew about the Cirque de Soleil "Love" project when she embarked upon this -- there are bound to be similarities. And at least Cirque used original Beatle recordings. Consdering the number of individuals (myself included) who have VERY DEFINITE mental images connected with every song in the Beatles catalog, to put literal visuals to them is a risky business. But hey, why not have a go?
I wish someone would give ME a few million dollars to put all MY Beatle fantasies on the big screen...
Guess I'm a little nervous that we seem to be into a Sixties nostalgia groove (check out Sienna Miller's new flick/write-up & pix in THE GUARDIAN) & those who WEREN'T there will think it was something like Ms. Taymor's vision...instead of like MY memories. ;D
I'm still waiting for "80 DAYS" to make it to the big screen! ;D
