Ron Howard’s sterling documentary on The Beatles gave the world new insight into the chaos of the band’s impact around the world in the early 1960s. Featuring footage from their earliest gigs to huge arenas, Eight Days a Week – The Touring Years does a fine job of giving context to the whirlwind ascension of The Beatles. It also does a good job of explaining why things were never the same again.
