I Met The Walrus

By September 16, 2008 2 Comments

In 1969, a 14-year-old Beatle fanatic named Jerry Levitan, armed with a reel-to-reel tape deck, snuck into John Lennon’s hotel room in Toronto and convinced John to do an interview about peace. 38 years later, Jerry has produced a film about it. Using the original interview recording as the soundtrack, director Josh Raskin has woven a visual narrative which tenderly romances Lennon’s every word in a cascading flood of multipronged animation. Raskin marries the terrifyingly genius pen work of James Braithwaite with masterful digital illustration by Alex Kurina, resulting in a spell-binding vessel for Lennon’s boundless wit, and timeless message.

    Well, of course, Kathy – staying home alone with your newborn is the worst. Reinforces that even you ca8#n&217;t stand your own company. And then there would be the expectation of some laundry being done, or God forbid, supper prepped. Do you realize how many working mom’s would love to be in your shoes?!
