Friday night’s Telluride Film Festival screening of The U.S. vs. John Lennon was rapturous, according to Santa Barbara Film Festival director Roger Durling. “In over 20 years of coming to Telluride, I’ve never seen a more positive reaction to a film than [this],” he wrote yesterday. “People were on their feet crying, clapping, hooting and hollering.” Congratulations to David Leaf and John Scheinfeld , the guys who put this film together, for scoring with such a direct emotional hit. Lennon was a phenomenal artist-performer-rockstar and in some ways a lovable human being, but my reaction to their film was not one of absolute enthrallment, which I tried to explain the other day.
