    To call it trippy would be an understatement. Your head might explode. Just don't accuse Taymor of playing it safe. show more

    I think this movie is amazing. It beings The Beatles music to life, and it tells an amazing story at the same time. The artistic nature of the film alone is mind blowing. I believe this is a must see movie and I think you need to really watch the movie to understand it.
