What Jackson comes to show, after accessing more than 60 unpublished hours of footage (the band invited a television team to those sessions), and 150 hours of audio recording, is that the documentary “Let It Be”, released in January 1970, a month after they announced their breakup, it has marked the historical memory of the end of The Beatles.
In that documentary, director Michael Lindsay-Hogg, who had directed a year before 21 days of television recordings in the studio, I would have chosen to reflect only a small part, the one that showed the most bitter face.
A traumatic and conflictive vision that, according to Jackson, could even permeate the memories of some members of the band – Lennon said that the recording of “Let It Be” had been “hell”.
But in “Get Back” it can be seen that there was much more besides bitter Ups and downs in the relationship between the members of the Liverpool group and the abandonment of George Harrison’s studio for a few days.

“Overall this stuff is really fun and there was a lot of humor in the band “, Jackson claimed in a recent interview with EFE.
The New Zealand director says that he did not intend to rewrite history, but “to tell what happened from day to day” and for it to unfold “as it really happened.” “Honestly, all those comments (like Lennon’s) I think are the memories they have of seeing ‘Let It Be’, not of what really happened in January 1969.”
Among many other images, in “Get Back” are all four joking, especially Lennon, who appears in some scenes doing the hooligan, mixed with others of the mythical performance on the roof of Apple’s offices on Savile Row street in London.
