Across the Universe (movie)

The LA Times had an interesting article about the Beatles place in the memories of teenage girls! ACROSS THE UNIVERSE, the terrific new film by Julie Taymor, was a great success in my book. I love the film, and especially the psychedelia, but I was mostly surprised at how much I loved the Beatles arrangements. Being a Beatles snob, I like very few covers that have been done of their music. But the guy (Jim Sturgess) that sings in the movie is terrific. Not that he imitates Paul or John, it just works for the music. And the arrangements by T-Bone Burnett and Elliot Goldenthal were superb.
