I Met The Walrus


In 1969, Jerry Levitan snuck his way into John Lennon’s hotel room for a brief but wonderfully candid interview. Over 30 years later, Jerry teamed up with Josh Raskin to create a film based on his original audio recording of that momentous occasion in young Levitan’s life. Check out the trailer.

Apparently, it’s going to be longer, although I’m not sure how long this approach can be sustained. I can’t wait to see how it turns out. For a more detailed account of the original interview, check out this story. (Levitan’s a lawyer in Toronto now. Let’s hope he hasn’t lost all his Lennon-flavored idealism.)

good editing and really good interpretation of style.
Uses some clichès (stain, hand drawing, skyline rising, etc.) but in a simbiotic and really effective design.
Great use of the camera that never loses its way even if it moves a lot!
And also the switch sound in the end has a good timing: I quite didn’t expect it.
Final Judgement: molto fico!

or maybe not?
