“Get Back”: the Beatles series directed by Peter Jackson

Still battered by the pandemic, with a world still tinged with shades of gray, New Zealand director Peter Jackson paints the Global Village in color and fills it with music from To recover, a nourishing mini-series of more than 60 hours of filming and 150 hours of recording removed from So be it, the group’s latest film.

To recover It premiered the previous weekend on Disney + and shows a hitherto unknown face of that time when the breakup took shape between the four Beatles.

Jackson’s documentary chronologically shows this it happened in january 1969 in which the Beatles decided to record an album while their intimacy was recorded, in the best style Big Brother, to make a new movie. So be it It came out a year later, when the band had already split up and were inclined to show the bitter arguments, lethargy, rispidities, uncomfortable presence of Yoko Ono. In addition, he reduced the last Fab Four concert to a few minutes on the terrace of Saville Road.

Now Peter Jackson has come to show that John, Paul, George and Ringo’s relationship it was not absolute. This is how the director preferred to highlight the mystique, the friendship of the years, the musical genius through long rehearsal sessions in which some of the songs from his final scene take shape and the themes that will be taken up in his first solo albums. And although To recover the luminous shows do not hide at any time the tensions that existed between them.

However, you prefer to spend time show the coexistence of the four with their partners. Linda is seen taking photos and her daughter Heather performing in the studio, Ringo’s wife Maureen Cox comes across as the true fan she was (she was from Liverpool and saw the band at their first concerts at The Cavern) and also Yoko Ono, here transformed into one more presence, a presence very close to Lennon and the group, but far from the intruder responsible for the musical divorce.

These scenes take on special significance in gender claims time, since we perceive a climate of love and respect, foreign to the world of “rock groupies”. She stops in the growth of the songs but also in the more everyday details of four musicians working hours as they are observed: the coffee they drink, the food they order for lunch, the cigarettes they eat. they light up, the clothes they wear, go out and come from assistants, technicians and Apple Corps employees. You can’t miss Georges martin, the historic producer of the group, the fifth beatle, who also has his close-ups, his snacks, his creative exchanges with each of the four.

It also appears Billy Preston, the guest musician of the sessions, the one who brought a breath of fresh air sitting in front of the electric piano. But, without a doubt, the highlight of the three chapters is the full concert on the terrace, with shots of nearby rooftops, of people in the street, of police trying to stop the concert because of complaints of annoying noise and with the four musicians watching in amazement what is happening among the passers-by. Although months later they recorded another album, it was the last time they played in public. And now we can all witness the most sensitive intimacy of his legacy.

Available on Disney +.

“Things to Clean”: the series with a genre perspective that is all the rage

Margaret Qualley and Andie MacDowell, mother and daughter in real life but also in fiction, are featured in this American mini-series about a single mother victim of gender violence.

Its original title is Housemaid and is inspired by the memories of Stéphanie Land, author of the story of a woman who in fiction is called Alex (Margaret Qualley). As soon as the first chapter begins, Alex runs away from the house she shares with her explosive boyfriend Sean (played by Nick Robinson) and brings with him his daughter Maddy (Rylea Nevaeh Whittet), who is almost 3 years old.

Mother and daughter find refuge in a victim support center, where Alex discovers the world of containment that the state offers to victims, he rethinks the different forms in which violence manifests itself, wonders how to be independent, looks back and resignifies his past and the relationship with his parents, while meeting other victims.

In this sudden inner process, start cleaning houses for a living and there she begins to write about the lives of the people who hire her with a subtle capacity for observation.

The story portrayed the true story of Stéphanie Land, who published the book Housekeeper: hard work, low wages and a mother’s will to survive (“The Maid: Hard Work, Low Pay, and a Mother’s Will for Survival”) The work started out as a diary and has grown into one of the most remarkable of 2019, even recommended by the former president Barack obama, who described it as an “unwavering look at the division of classes in the United States.”
