Just saw “Across the Universe” — a musical featuring a variety of Beatles songs. Really well done. Featured several cameo performances including a great rendition of “I am the Walrus” by Bono, who plays a Ken Kesey-like figure. English comedian Eddie Izzard performs a notable version of “Being for the Benefit of Mr. Kite.

The film left me with a renewed appreciation for the Beatles as lyricists. Not sure another group will ever match their talent.

UPDATE: Roger Ebert named it the 7th-best film of 2007. Here’s his review.
