The Killing of John Lennon (2006)

Last Updated: Feb 2013

Mark David Chapman (Jonas Ball), a 25 year old security guard in Hawaii, bought a plane ticket to New York with the intention of killing the world's greatest musician and dreamer: The Beatles' John Lennon. Camping outside Lennon's apartment in New York waiting for an autograph, Chapman's childlike obsession with this "celebrity phony" descends into madness.

otsoNY Comments: When Chapman is riding in a taxi at the start of his first trip to New York, he is driven through Times Square. A number of stores that weren't in Times Square in 1980 clearly can be seen, including Foot Locker, a Virgin Megastore and Planet Hollywood.
