Re: Always wondered about the availability of the "Let It Be" film
My impression was that the original film used a lot of editing tricks to make there seem like there was more drama than there was. So it's less a case of Paul being a perfectionist and more a case of the original film not accurately representing the sessions as they actually happened (to the point of exacerbating some of the early Beatles myths).
Making a new doc out of the raw footage seems like the best possible solution. Glad the original will be made available too, but the new version will likely be even more interesting.
