The Sixties Review

Fascinating documentary series on the swinging decade


From That Thing You Do! to his now-shooting Cold War film with Spielberg, Tom Hanks is no stranger to the swingiest decade. He’s the star producer behind this slick ten-part documentary, which sets out to show how the 1960s changed everything forever. Some episodes are a little thin, but the JFK précis is a masterclass and the talking heads superior, from Vince Gilligan to Hanks himself.
