The Beatles Anthology (1995)

A collection of documentaries spanning the entire career of the band.

Help! (1965)

One of the films the band released to supplement their albums, this one has the band doing a James Bond spoof while traveling the world. "The Beatles film has an obscure Asian cult that believes in human sacrifice after Ringo who has accidentally put on the victim's ceremonial ring. He is pursued by the cult, a pair of mad scientists, and a member of a side cult that no longer believes in human sacrifice, and the London police who are trying to help." —imdb.com

Across the Universe (2007)

This film which came out recently is a psychedelic, artistic tribute to The Beatles. It is a musical journey which follows a young couple, Jude and Lucy (both song title characters) through a crazy trip of love and discovery.

Yellow Submarine (1968)

This kid-friendly film follows a cartoon version of the band on all kinds of wacky adventures.
