A Hard Days Night (1964)
Directed by Richard Lester
For breakfast: Orange Danish with slightly overcooked extra crispy bacon
This fun-loving ’60s romp never fails to put a smile on my face. Easily one of the greatest musical films ever made, this comes in second only to The Last Waltz as one of my favorites. It’s hard to beat 90 minutes of Beatles music, zany antics, and satire, all with tongue placed firmly in cheek while giving a big wink to the audience. It’s also hard not to just eat up Richard Lester’s energetic style that is obviously influenced by the French New Wave. If you don’t have fun watching this film, then there’s no helping you.
