The U.S. vs. John Lennon

The U.S. vs. John Lennon
Directed by David Leaf & John Scheinfeld

“John Lennon was a born enemy of those who control the United States, which I always say was admirable. Lennon came to represent life, while Mr. Nixon… and Mr. Bush… represent death. ” –Gore Vidal

The U.S. vs. John Lennon is a 2006 documentary film about British musician John Lennon’s transformation from a member of The Beatles to a rallying anti-war activist striving for world peace during the late 1960s and early 1970s. The film also details the attempts by the United States government under President Richard Nixon to silence him. The film had its world premiere at the Venice Film Festival and its North American premiere at the Toronto Film Festival. It was released in New York City and Los Angeles, California on 15 September 2006, and had a nationwide release on 29 September. A soundtrack composed of John Lennon tracks was released by Capitol Records and EMI on 26 September 2006.

The film is distributed by Lions Gate Films, which also distributed Michael Moore’s 2004 film Fahrenheit 9/11. It makes extensive use of archival footage of Yoko and John, and includes a famously hard-hitting interview conducted by anti-war reporter Gloria Emerson.

The U.K. release was on December 8, 2006, 26 years to the day after the death of John Lennon. The DVD was released on February 13, 2007 in the United States.
