BackBeat
« on: August 24, 2004, 01:00:19 AM »

 :) Have any of you guys see BackBeat! This film was made in 1994, the main actors in this film are Sheryl Lee ( Astrid Kirchherr) and Stephen Dorff (Stuart Sutcliffe) Johns bestfriend, John is played by (Ian Hart) theres also Paul, George, and Ringo. Ringo only has a smal part in it, just lays in bed. This movie shows how The Bealtes beggan there career :) I like this film and i injoy seen it over and over again ;D Tell me what you think of this movie do you like it? have you seen it ? or if you haven't seen it before?


This is some of the movies review:

''BackBeat has a convulsive energy, a raw and joyous explosivess, it's a rausingly seductive rock the house whirldwind.''   - The Chicago Tribune

''BackBeat is a thrilling spectacle thats rocks the house...defiant, raucous, erotic.''      -Rolling Stones

''BackBeat is sure-fire entertainment, stunning for its candor and emotionally explosive. Stephen Dorff is brilliant...''         -Entertainment Weekly

''You won't just cheer, you'll 'Twist & Shout'.''     -ABC-TV


I like the last quote  :)

This was the second time Ian Hart had portrayed John Lennon on screen - he also starred in a black and white film about John's trip to Spain with Brian Epstein (can't for the life of me remember the title though!). That film, although based on some actual events, was mostly fiction too.

The movie was 'The Hours And Times'. Not one of my favorites.

I never knew anything about it on dvd and mines is the vhs, but you could do a search on ebay or do a yahoo search. I'm sure someone has a copy. Just dont pay alot for it, its b&w and a little over an hour long. Also depending on how you think of John, This film can be unsettling. Good luck in your search

If you're interested in seeing a dramatized version of John's supposed homosexual relationship with Brian Epstein, then buy this movie! Otherwise steer WELL clear - it contains full-frontal footage of "John" having his back washed in the bath by "Brian"! Made me cringe!

How did the people who made HOURS AND TIMES get this information about Brian giving John a bath and so on?
It's got to be total fiction, right?

TOTAL fiction!

The only truth is that they did go on holiday together in 1963 as John was apparently suffering from exhaustion.

Bob Wooler, the Cavern DJ, made some comment about John and Brian at Paul's 21st Birthday party and John beat him up so badly that he was hospitalised! The attack made the "Daily Mirror" newspaper and was the Beatles first ever appearance in the national press!

Brian Epstein ended up paying Bob Wooler 200 GBP not to press charges!

Sorry... I rambled on for way too long there!!! :)

Knowing that it is absolutely untrue, I'd like to watch "The hours and the times" just to see how ther story is apporached. I've seen picutres, snapshots of the film (that I plan to post her as soon as I can) of "JOHN" and "Brian" mouth kissing while JOHN is having a bath in a bathtube. I admit it's very impressive, myself was shocked when I saw those pictures.

It's just imagination...
