Many myths are blown here - we see the band having a lot of fun, John playing with Paul’s stepdaughter (and having a fantastic and hilarious exchange with her about her new kittens). We also see John entertaining everyone with monologues that will have you in stitches. Legend also has Yoko being the cause of tension, but here she is shown happily mingling with everyone and being accepted, and when she joins in with the band for some way-out jamming it is clear that everyone concerned is having a total blast. Even young Heather joins in the fun with her own Yoko-style vocals (much to John’s delight).
The highlight is, of course, the rooftop concert. We see how the cameras are set up, including a hidden camera to catch any action in the building foyer, which is a story in itself.
So now the missed opportunities. Well, there are no bonus features, much to the chagrin of most fans. An obvious one is the entire concert, without seeing the drama going on with the police and the crowd outside. Sure, those elements are vital and great to watch, but it does mean that in the film we don’t get to see the concert uninterrupted. The other major ommitance is the original film. We had been promised that the original film would be re-released, and this was surely the opportunity to do that. Will it ever happen? Who knows. But with or without bonus features, this is an incredible set, and the film quality is top-notch.
11/26/22...I disassembled, cleaned and updated my Samsung BluRay player and all is fine. Not going to bore you with another positive review but I've been a Beatle fan since the beginning and this is definitely a must have. Looks and sounds incredible and it's great to be a fly on the wall watching these sessions.

Not impressed at all by the haphazard issue though, all seemed very amateurish. The months long will it or won’t it be issued, followed by an eventual release with month long delivery estimates, and even then only on Blu-ray, lead me to miss the initial affordable release, instead holding back for a copy I could buy in a physical shop. This never happened and the online shop supply also dried up, then sporadically reappeared at varying exorbitant prices with only imports available. Got my straight DVD copy eventually at good price, it is basically packaged in standard dvd flip case, absolutely no issue with that, no random rubbish to inflate the price, all you need is on the discs. The DVD region issue is also badly handled. I have an ancient region free player which plays the Region 1 disc without any issues, but I can imagine that this is just another added frustration for many in a region 2 zone. In my opinion this incredible film has been poorly marketed, and, other than big Beatles fans, so many people I speak to don’t even know it exists!
Particularly pleasing is Jackson’s aim to show the Let it Be sessions as one which there was an enduring abundance of love between the guys. Added to the incredible creativity which is shown in how the songs were created from scratch, this documentary is a must must buy if you have any interest in The Beatles.
