“It would be impossible to talk about anything without The Beatles. I thought about leaving it off for a second because it’s so obvious, but it’s such a building block. And besides, it’s just so enjoyable.
“What can you say? There’s the songs, there’s The Beatles, the great characters, the dialogue – it kind of wrote the book on the whole thing. You just can't not acknowledge how well made it is and how smart it is. There’s innovations all over the place in it.”

“Even though A Hard Day’s Night isn’t about The Beatles’ invasion of America, there’s something about Bob Dylan going to England that really does relate. If nothing else, the scene between Dylan and Donovan at the hotel is just terrific.”
