Let It Be Director Michael Lindsay-Hogg's Words of Wisdom on His Misunderstood Beatles Doc

  Let It Be Director Michael Lindsay-Hogg's Words of Wisdom on His Misunderstood Beatles Doc The director's intimate film has been unavailable for decades. Now the footage he shot has been edited into an 8-hour epic by Peter Jackson. Is it time for a reappraisal of the Beatles' supposed "breakup movie"?It's Jan. 29, 1969, and director Michael Lindsay-Hogg has a problem. He has just days to improvise an ending for his film with the Beatles, and they are not making it easy for him. This is keeping with the theme of the month-long production, a logistical nightmare that has morphed from a television concert special into a cinéma vérité documentary midway through the shoot.

Fab FAU are back. This Thursday, November 25, the Disney + platform starts to broadcast "The Beatles: Get Back, a mini-series in three episodes on the recording of the latest Beatles album.

A mini-series that will undoubtedly delight the lovers of the mythical group of British pop.

On January 2, 1969, John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr lock in a hangar for a little over two weeks. They must compose 14 new songs they plan to play at a new concert broadcast on television. A documentary film films the creative process. This will lead to the album and film Let it be that coming out the following year, the date of the separation of the group.

Disney+’s ‘The Beatles: Get Back’: TV Review

  Disney+’s ‘The Beatles: Get Back’: TV Review Peter Jackson’s three-part documentary chronicles an intensely productive month for the band, culminating in the legendary Jan. 30, 1969, public performance that would be its last.Conceived as a live album and TV special that would capture their first performance before an audience since 1966, the group’s “Get Back” project would morph several times over their three weeks of writing, rehearsing, goofing around and navigating, with the utmost British restraint, interpersonal tensions. Until now, the only documentation of this period, beyond the tracks that wound up on the albums Abbey Road and Let It Be, was an 80-minute documentary that has long been out of official circulation.

The director Peter Jackson, who knows in myth, rewritten the legend with these hours of Rush, who remained hidden in a sealed trunk for 50 years.

How is a song?

Each episode, which lasts more than two and a half hours, shows these men of 28 years, component, joking even, under the careful look of the companions, like Yoko Ono, knitting alongside John Lennon. Certainly there are disagreements, tensions, George Harrison's departure, but also a creative emulation and camaraderie process.

The absolute fans of the Beatles will undoubtedly want to discover this exceptional testimony of the group at work. The laymen will probably find long time. But they can marvel at seeing how a song is born, like Get Back or Let IT BE.
