Critics reviews

Help! is in a class by itself, not so much a matching bookend to A Hard Day’s Night as a half-joyous, half-mournful afterword. The plot is unapologetically silly, and wholly delightful.

On Blu-ray these colors really pop – particularly, the bold use of solid colors in the indoor sequences – and we also notice remarkably subtle qualities of light in the outdoor scenes… Help!‘s dialogue, like the dialogue of A Hard Day’s Night and The Knack (the two Richard Lester films that preceded it) is terrifically clever…

The songs in Help! are down a few notches from the extraordinary level of the score for A Hard Day’s Night, but the title song for Help!, despite its drippings of teenage melancholia, is about the best song the Lennon-McCartney team has conceived. Why, then, am I singing the blues about the Beatles movie? I suppose because I have the feeling that Lester and the Beatles added to each other in their first film together, but that they subtract from each other in their second.
