Starring: John Lennon, Tariq Ali, Carl Bernstein, Noam Chomsky, Walter Cronkite
Directed by: David Leaf, John Scheinfeld

This documentary by David Leaf and John Scheinfeld succeeds as both a loving tribute and as a remarkable historical document. The film traces Lennon’s transformation from artist into anti-war activist and then shows the U.S. government’s reactionary response. If a man and a woman staging a “bed-in” for peace scared the bejesus out of the deeply strange duo of Richard Nixon and J. Edgar Hoover, one can’t help but wonder how Bush and Cheney would respond today.
