8PM: DOCUMENTARY - Iconic UK pop group “The Beatles” now belong to an honored past, stuck there like an obelisk, and yet here they are, alive-busting out all over, time and time again. THE BEATLES - EIGHT DAYS A WEEK (2016, 137 min) catches the exhilarating kick of Beatlemania as the band toured 15 countries from 1963 to 1966. It amounted to an almost unbroken four-year, semi-improvised multimedia performance for which there was no pre-existing template – not simply the music but the giant public spectacle and public scrutiny, the theatre of arriving at airports, hotels, posing for incessant photographs, and most challengingly of all, talking to journalists. Ron Howard's documentary rightly keeps coming back to the music and the band's delight in making it. Good move. It truly is a joy forever.
