    The film that they all turned away from in Lennon's account of it in The Beatles' song A Day In The Life. Inovative and thought provoking, not just ajohn Lennon vehicle, not just an anti-war film. D Cairns review here at Britmovie sums it up a whole lot better than I can, so, recommended reading.

    This thread is for Sgt. Sunshine



    Some behind the scenes footage/ Dick Lester interview to start.

    Like many of Lester's films it has its moments, but ultimately they're very episodic and maybe the Goon influence leads to his films feeling like a series of connected sketches. Often blackly comic but never a biting satire.

    As indeed war is very episodic, and what to do with the men during those times when they are not fighting.



    Most satire loses it's edge with the passing of time

    Inspiring and definitely of its time, ......and time to compose "Strawberry Fields" too..
