  The DVD Journal | Quick Reviews: Backbeat: Collector's Edition
The narrative is hermetically sealed within the little-known but seminal time before the Beatles became the Fab Four, from the band's early days barely getting by as inchoate rock-and-roll rebels to just before their pop-chart success preceding the 1964 debut on American television that changed the orbit of the planet.
While balancing that protean rock-and-roll energy with quiet melancholy, Backbeat's pulse lies in its well-crafted meditations on hard choices, the expansive definitions of love, and (when the film is at its most self-conscious) the caprice of destiny.
Backbeat is not a "biopic" or an attempt at a history lesson.
