The dissolution of the Fab Four is captured on camera in Michael Lindsay-Hogg's documentary, a filmed record of the sessions for what would become the Beatles' final release, Let It Be.

Included is footage shot at the famous rooftop concert that was the Fabs' final live appearance.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Let It Be is a relatively innocuous, unimaginative piece of film."
‑ Variety Staff, Variety
"The scenes included in the film show the four simply trying to make music, and often as not having fun doing it."
‑ , TV Guide's Movie Guide
"Phoney documentary with great music. Notable for the bits of truth that get through"
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
"The sycophancy of the direction notwithstanding, this survives as a fascinating record of both the Beatles' collapse and their unending power over their audience (us)."
‑ , Time Out
"In many ways, it is the best Beatles film."
‑ Phil Hall, Film Threat
"The only glimpse we will have of the world's most successful and influential musical group at work"
‑ Shane Burridge, rec.arts.movies.reviews
"Sanitized it may well be, but agonizing nonetheless -- it's a domestic squabble that somehow touches history."
‑ Dave Kehr, Chicago Reader
"Like the album it shares a name with, the film is not all it should have been."
‑ , Film4
