When I first found out that the theater at which I volunteer was getting this film, I was surprised because I had never heard of it. After looking it up, I was even more confused because it looked like it wasn't of particular quality. Ultimately, I found it to be different than expected, but still not great.
The documentary falls into the "live performance" type more akin to a stand-up special than an investigative documentary. As such, the filmmaking elements of it aren't of particular notability. It is just a recorded performance of a lecture. The lecture is definitely interesting, as it goes into the historical and musical elements of the music of The Beatles. Still, some of the information may be a bit difficult to follow for those who are not closely acquainted with musical terminology.
Overall, "Deconstructing Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band" is an interesting, but likely forgettable documentary about The Beatles.
