The Beatles: Get Back

The Beatles: Get Back

Absolutely astonishing for its patient unfurling of the creative process behind iconic songs — nothing more incredible than seeing these four men fumbling around for SOMETHING to expand upon their first few days only to pull certified classics out of nowhere while killing time or after taking a night off practicing — and for its recontextualization of this era of the band as one desperately trying anything they can to keep it together rather than one a moment away from killing each other on the spot. Only marred by Peter Jackson's postproduction technical decisions and extremely questionable DNR, which renders multiple shots muddled and out-of-focus in a way that occasionally distracts, but it's a footnote of a quibble against the sheer joy in seeing the lads overcome a Herculean series of obstacles set against them and making music history.
