THE HOURS AND TIMES
1991, Oscilloscope Laboratories, 57 min, USA, Dir: Christopher Munch

Christopher Munch’s boldly original debut is a fictional account of what might have happened in April 1963, when John Lennon and Beatles manager Brian Epstein traveled to Barcelona for an extended weekend getaway. In the four days they spend together, the suave Epstein (David Angus) and the provocative Lennon (Ian Hart, in his first starring role) reflect on their lives, both private and professional, as they explore the unique bond they share. Munch’s sparse and intimate narrative, captured with exquisite black-and-white cinematography, is a thoughtful meditation on friendship and sexuality, crafted around a brief moment in the lives of two extremely well-known pop figures.
