    The music of the Beatles and the Vietnam War form the backdrop for the romance between an upper-class American girl and a poor Liverpudlian artist.

    I could dig it for a while-- Taymor’s obsessive pattern-making has its fascination; the actors are all gloriously game (Joe Anderson stands out) and inject some emotional heft into the strung-together songs; the Izzard, Bono, and Cocker cameos are very fun. However, somewhere midway through it becomes clear that Taymor’s strikingly clinical way of looking at things is all wrong for this pop-fusion touchy-feely endeavor-- bits of beauty float by in a frigid sea of overconceptualized montage-- and that they…

    "I wanted to say to that kid who wanted to watch Across the Universe with me, uh, that I love you, and I want to hold your hand. I love that movie, have you seen that movie? It's like amazing, it's like BEATLES!"

    That statement from Catie "Boxxy" Wayne could be an entirely fitting review for this movie, but it won't be enough for me personally. There were two major events in my life (hey, "In My Life") that synchronized…

    I love the work of Julie Taymor, but this one I did not feel it...
