The U.S. vs John Lennon

A compelling exposition of the political persecution of outspoken, anti-war Beatle, John Lennon. As an unpopular war in Vietnam dragged on into the 1970s, Nixon's government so feared the peace movement coalescing around the Liverpudlian musician that concerted, if inept, efforts were made to have him deported from the United States. This thoughtful portrait of the man and a turbulent era is full of footage and interviews from the time, and peppered with present-day commentary from various luminaries including Gore Vidal, Noam Chomsky and of course, Yoko Ono.
