An instant classic when released in September 1971, John Lennon’s Imagine was the ex-Beatle’s solo masterpiece, and its musical legacy is matched here by priceless footage of Lennon’s creative process, independently edited from original 16-millimeter footage by producer-director Andrew Solt with the hands-off approval of Lennon’s widow, Yoko Ono. Incorporating footage from John and Yoko’s original film Imagine (clips of which were previously included in the 1988 documentary Imagine: John Lennon), Gimme Some Truth presents Lennon, Ono, coproducer Phil Spector, and a host of gifted musicians in a fluid context of conflict, community, and craftsmanship. Bearing witness to every stage of the recording process, this 63-minute documentary succeeds as a visual diary, a study of familiar music in its infancy, and a revealing portrait of the then-30-year-old Lennon–from witty clown to confrontational perfectionist–at the peak of his post-Fab Four inspiration.
