"The Lennon Report" looks at the focus on the efforts of first responders at the site of the shooting - and at the Roosevelt hospital where Lennon was taken.
I must confess that I find this focus on that senseless murder depressing. I can barely watch these films. I stayed away from that 2008 "Chapter 27" film.
There are lots of stories to tell about the adventurous life of John Lennon. Give me a "Lost weekend" film any day. May Pang is currently rewriting her "Loving John" book, because the editors removed so much from her original manuscript. A dramatisation of John Lennon's interaction with Phil Spector and the rock'n'roll gang in Los Angeles, including a visit from the McCartneys would be something I'd like to watch.
Or how about his retreat from the public eye following the "Rock'n' Roll" album, his house-husband days leading up to his Bermuda adventure?
