The U.S. vs. John Lennon (R2) in April
Lions Gate Home Entertainment have announced the UK Region 2 DVD release of The U.S. vs. John Lennon for 2nd April 2007 priced at £19.99. Before Iraq, before the Bush Administration, before the Dixie Chicks, Bruce Springsteen, and Pearl Jam … there was John Lennon, the celebrated musician who used his fame and his fortune to protest against the Vietnam War and advocate for world peace. The U.S government were so worried about the popularity and influence of this anti-war activist and inspirational icon, that they initiated a campaign to silence him.
David Leaf and John Scheinfeld’s documentary uses fascinating archive footage and insightful interviews with those who knew him well to tell the story of that campaign.
