Unavailable to the general public (until you depend ropey pirated VHS copies) for some 50 years and acquired on its launch in 1970 with the passion normally reserved for a ferocious bout of norovirus (the sting of the band’s current breakup had one thing to do with it, as did problems with tone, pacing and a Macca-skewed focus), Michael Lindsay-Hogg’s documentary is lastly served as much as audiences as soon as once more, through Disney+. Some, however not all, of this movie in regards to the making of the Beatles’ ultimate album can be acquainted to those that watched Get Again, Peter Jackson’s almost eight-hour three-part collection – assembled from footage shot by Lindsay-Hogg for this movie. We see the formative phases of now-classic songs; a chipper Paul, rattling on to fill the silence; John trying so bored he’s on the verge of tears: on the very least it’s a captivating historic doc. Nevertheless, the fly on the wall songbook method is draggy and repetitive – this stays a flawed and barely irritating music documentary.
