‘Lord of the Rings’ director Peter Jackson joins Variety’s Doc Dreams, to talk about his new documentary on Liverpool’s most famous rock n’ roll band. Jackson shares how, during the course of making the doc, he found the Beatles’ break-up to have been strangely more joyous than anticipated, how it was the longest he’s ever spent in the edit room and why George Harrison would be the best Beatle on a film set.
The documentary begins in January 1969, and the long-haired, bearded Fab Four have taken over the dank, cavernous Twickenham Studios. There, they have just three weeks to create and rehearse 14 songs, at which point they’re supposed to play them in front of a live audience for a TV special.
For the audience, thanks to Jackson’s de-aged footage, it feels like they are in the moment-to-moment reality of what it was like for the Four as they toil away on their second-to-last studio album.
