The U.S. vs. John Lennon

As the war in Vietnam continued with no discernible end in sight, John Lennon, residing in the States at the time, became the poster child of the anti-war movement and a proverbial thorn in the side of the Nixon Administration who sought to take legal action to deport the peace loving icon. The U.S. vs. John Lennon is a muddled documentary that rehashes well known historical points with uninteresting less known ones, concludes with harebrained conspiracy theories, and features an insufferable Yoko Ono commenting throughout.
