A Hard Day's Night

A Hard Day's Night ★★★★½

86/100

"How did you find America?"

"Turned left at Greenland."

The frenzied, volatile opening to A Hard Day's Night is equivalent to being on a rollercoaster without a seat belt or a safety harness. It starts and you're like "ooooooh fuck nononono mister mister I'm not ready" and before you know it, you're holding on for dear life, exhilarated by going from 0 to 60 in a matter of seconds. This joyride of a movie, this indelible snapshot of an energy, a time, a place is as fresh and funny as ever. And it feels unstable; alive in ways which cannot be explained but only felt. Their music (and by extension, this movie) soothes the soul while still rollicking along with a rocking, experimental pace.

P.S: If you personally know someone who doesn't like The Beatles, please report them to your local authorities. Thank you.
