Imagine: John Lennon is a 1988 documentary film about English musician John Lennon.

Imagine: John Lennon, with its wealth of stock Lennon footage and self-narration, proved to be a well-received film.[1] Bridging his two musical phases together as a member of The Beatles and as a solo artist, Imagine: John Lennon is a career-spanning collection of Lennon's many musical highlights. In addition, there are a couple of heretofore unreleased recordings: an acoustic demo of "Real Love" taped in 1979 (an alternate recording of which would be finished by The Beatles for 1996' s Anthology 2) and a rehearsal take of "Imagine" in mid-1971 before the final take was captured.[2][3]

The project arrived at a timely juncture and was an attempt at thwarting the then-released The Lives of John Lennon by Albert Goldman, a controversial and reputation-tarnishing book which many dismissed as fiction, including Ono and Lennon's close friends.
