After being formally unavailable for over 50 years, The Beatles’ documentary movie Let It Be has lastly been restored for launch.

Streaming on Disney+ from at the moment, Let It Be captures John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr recording their remaining album collectively, alongside their final dwell efficiency on the roof of Apple Corps HQ.

Fans will little question have already seen Peter Jackson’s revisionist 8-hour documentary The Beatles: Get Back, which used unseen footage from Michael Lindsay-Hogg’s 1969 shoot.

Reviews for the remastered Let It Be film are out now and the overwhelming majority are a glowing 4 stars.

One of essentially the most joyful rock documentaries ever made.

Daily Telegraph
Lindsay-Hogg’s movie appears very fashionable, partly due to the daring alternative (for the time) to don’t have any voiceover narration… the viewer is thrown into the motion and left to attract their very own conclusions from snatches of dialogue and fleeting expressions.

The Times
If Peter Jackson’s near-eight hour Get Back miniseries was a blowout of Beatles-nerd gluttony, this restored feature-length documentary from the identical interval is a much less calorific dessert.

The Guardian
In reality, its total tone doesn’t appear that totally different from the ostensibly happier or extra rounded Get Back: a handful of arguments and moments of froideur interspersed with clowning for the digicam.

Evening Standard
Let It Be is instantly a pleasure. Everything is right here: the love in addition to the strife, the unbelievable element of their songwriting, and the daftness that was intrinsic to the band and helped oil the wheels of every part; a foolish sense of humour is definitely a human’s most underrated high quality, at the very least in the case of English folks.

There will not be a extra punk rock little bit of movie on earth than George being informed the police have been on the roof to close them down, and casually turning his amp again on. For that alone, for all its whitewashing and line-toeing, Let It Be stays a staggering watch.

Let It Be and The Beatles: Get Back are streaming now on Disney+.
