3.0 out of 5 stars A Bootleg By Any Other Name, 24 Sep 2013
First: is it worth buying this? Yes, if you're a Beatles fan and frustrated that an 'official' release has been held back for so long. No, if you're expecting a cinema-quality presentation: the visuals are poor - grainy, soft-focus and badly framed; I can't believe that director Micheal Lindsay-Hogg thought the editing was good - and the sound quality is thin.

Second: what is it about? The early sessions in Twickenham are a poor watch, musically and visually; but when the Beatles pull themselves together at Apple, and do some set pieces to camera - never mind the rooftop performance - the film comes to a triumphant end.

Bottom line? It's worth it if you want to see "the film they wouldn't let be" right now, and to see the rooftop concert in full. Not worth it, if you're prepared to wait (until when...?) for an official, hopefully remastered, release.

Expect bootleg quality and you won't be disappointed...
