The sessions were later described by Harrison as "the low of all-time" and by Lennon as "hell The problem with that was I had bonded or was developing a relationship with George, exclusive of them. I think it fitted a need of his and mine, that he could elevate himself by having this Two Of Us - The Beatles - Let It Be that could be like a gunslinger to them.
Lennon would use my name every now and then for clout, as if I was the fastest gun. So, I don't think I could have been brought into the whole thing because I was too much a mate of George's.

Having this fifth person was just enough to cut the ice that we'd created among ourselves. During the sessions, the Beatles played many songs that were not featured in the film. The group also experimented with some of their previous songs " Love Me Do ," " Help!
Trying to come up with a conclusion for the film, it was suggested that the band play an unannounced lunchtime concert on the roof of the Apple building. On 30 January, the Beatles and Preston played on the rooftop in the cold wind for 42 minutes, about half of which ended up in the film. The Beatles started with a rehearsal of "Get Back," then played the five songs which are shown in the film. After repeating "I've Got a Feeling" and "Don't Let Me Down," takes which were left out of the film, the Beatles are shown in the film closing with another pass at "Get Back" as the police arrive to shut down the Two Of Us - The Beatles - Let It Be.
On the 31st, the last day of filming and recording, the Beatles reconvened in the Apple building's basement studio. They played complete performances of "Two of Us," "The Long and Winding Road," and "Let It Be," which were included in the film as the end of the Apple studio segment, before the closing rooftop segment. A rough cut of the movie was screened for the Beatles on 20 July Lindsay-Hogg recalled that the rough Two Of Us - The Beatles - Let It Be was about an hour longer than the released version: "There was much more stuff of John and Yoko, and the other three didn't really think that was appropriate because they wanted to make it a 'nicer' movie.
They didn't want to have a lot of the Two Of Us - The Beatles - Let It Be laundry, so a lot of it was cut down. He also retained the scene that he described as "the back of Paul's head as he's yammering on and John looks like he's about to die from boredom. In early it was decided to change the planned name of the film and the associated album from Get Back to Let It Bematching the group's March single release. To create the wider theatrical aspect ratio, the top and bottom of the frame was cropped, necessitating the repositioning of every single shot for optimal picture composition.
While the album Let It Be contains many of the song titles featured in the film, in most cases they are different performances. The film has additional songs not included on the album. The following songs are listed in the order of their first appearance, with songwriting credited to Lennon—McCartney except where noted. The world premiere of the film was in New York City on 13 May None of the Beatles attended any of the premieres.
The soundtrack also won a Grammy for " Best Original Score ". They mistakenly overlooked Starr's writing credit on the song "Dig It". Initial reviews were generally unfavourable; the British press were especially critical,  with The Sunday Telegraph commenting that "it is only incidentally that we glimpse anything about their real characters—the way in which music now seems to be the only unifying force holding them together, and the way Paul McCartney chatters incessantly even when, it seems, none of the others are listening.
Later Yours Truly, Indiscreetly - Michael Henderson - In The Night-Time were more favourable, although rarely glowing, as the historical significance of the film's content factored into critics' assessments.
Leonard Maltin rated the film as 3 out of 4 stars, calling it "uneven" and "draggy", but "rescued" by the Beatles' music. It is important viewing for all music fans.
Lindsay-Hogg told Entertainment Weekly in that reception to Let It Be within the Beatles camp was "mixed";  he believes McCartney and Lennon both liked the film, while Harrison disliked it because "it represented a time in his life when he was unhappy It was a time when he very much was trying Two Of Us - The Beatles - Let It Be get out from under the thumb of Lennon—McCartney.
