The-Beatles-A-Hard-Days-Night

An irreverent movie that never grows old. It looks and feels as fresh as the very first time.

Sometimes reminds one of silent slapstick and sometimes of the Marx brothers. There have been many efforts to recapture the spirit of those old comedies, but Mr. Lester's is the first I've seen that gets beyond self-conscious pastiche.

Dwight MacDonald, Esquire Magazine

The movie never feels like a nostalgia trip. It moves, breathes and sings with life.

Meet the Beatles! Just one month after they exploded onto the U.S. scene with their Ed Sullivan Show appearance, John, Paul, George, and Ringo began working on a project that would bring their revolutionary talent to the big screen. 

A Hard Day’s Night, in which the bandmates play cheeky comic versions of themselves, captured the astonishing moment when they officially became the singular, irreverent idols of their generation and changed music forever.

Directed with raucous, anything-goes verve by Richard Lester and featuring a slew of iconic pop anthems, including the title track, “Can’t Buy Me Love,” “I Should Have Known Better,” and “If I Fell,” A Hard Day’s Night, which reconceived the movie musical and exerted an incalculable influence on the music video, is one of the most deliriously entertaining movies of all time.
