[Howard seems] as if he were intent on making a film for anyone who tuned in to The Ed Sullivan Show in 1964, fell in love with the four adorable mop tops and regrets all the long-haired plonking about with sitars that came later. Full Review
Eight Days A Week confirms that every young group of miscreants who have picked up guitars and drums in the last fifty years have been playing in The Beatles sandbox. Full Review
[J]ust try watching it without smiling.....Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr, the surviving Beatles, provide fresh interviews, and John Lennon and George Harrison are heard in clips, all of them reflecting on what it was like to ride the beast.
New York Times
THE BEATLES: EIGHT DAYS A WEEK supplies a month-by-month account of the band's brief tenure as a live band. Predictably full of great performing footage and incorporating new interviews with the too-few surviving witnesses...
3 stars out of 4 -- [The film] catches the exhilarating kick of Beatlemania as the band toured 15 countries from 1963 to 1966....The documentary rightly keeps coming back to the music and the band's delight in making it.
Rating: 4/5 -- This doc isn't pretending to be anything but hagiographic, but despite its obvious fandom, it does a great job of reminding us just how ground breaking and popular the Beatles really were. Full Review
Dear Cast and Crew
This film, like The Beatles, arrives and leaves in a rush, but it does leave one thing behind: unforgettable music. Full Review
Director Ron Howard (RUSH, APOLLO 13) takes a look back at the years when the Beatles were still a touring band, from their early performances in Europe in 1963 to their decision in 1966 to quit playing publicly in order to focus on their work in the studio. This documentary features archival footage of the Beatles' legendary concerts, as well as interviews with surviving band members Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr, and famous fans such as Whoopi Goldberg, Sigourney Weaver, and Elvis Costello.
