…and since I was a kid I was infatuated with the Beatles. So It was a no brainier that I would want to see the Beatles Get Back documentary when it started to stream over the Thanksgiving holiday. I call it a Black Friday gift to myself. So far, like the hype leading up to the release, it’s been a very happy film. In the first two hours like in the Let It Be Movie you hear raw versions of songs that would end up on the Abby Road album. You hear raw versions of songs that would end up on eventual solo albums like George Harrison’s, All Things Must Pass. John Lennon’s, Give Me Some Truth that ended up on the Imagine album. Paul McCartney’s, Another Day that he released as a single while working on the Ram album, and that’s just after 2 hours of the 6 hour documentary. Now, while it’s been a happy film for the most part you can see and feel some of the tension between the 4. Consider the time period, January 1969. Your Michael Lindsay Hogg tasked with directing a Beatles project and you’re witnessing first hand that the rumor of discontent in a band that was on top of the world was real. That could have been why a lot of the happiness was left on the cutting room floor and the decision to go with a story of how a band breaks up is what we got in the Let It Be Movie. New director and producer Peter Jackson has taken the unseen footage and shows the story of a band thinking of its future, thinking of a venue to play live for the first time since 1966 marking off the days on a calendar leading up to that day that eventually turns out to be the roof top of Apple recording studios and the struggle to get their including George’s frustration and telling everyone he quits and will see them around in the clubs. Part one ends with John, Paul and Ringo planning to go to George’s house and the outcome apparently not so good. So, if you’ll excuse me, I’m going travel back to January 1969 to see what happens next, like I don’t know, as part two started streaming.
