Fortunately, I got to see this on YouTube BEFORE it was being turned on its side… though it was broken into 9 segments.  It might've been more interesting if everyone involved was genuinely interested in the project.  As it is, it's the weakest of their 5 films.

Oh, I have always thought it was the weakest of their films – I would still love to get an official restored print with some nice extras.

Watched this earlier today.

I can understand why Paul thinks he looks bad, but I thought it would be a lot worse than it actually is (or at least appears to me). He does come across as being quite commanding and a bit bossy, but if you have any idea about the Beatles and their split at all (which you probably do if you're watching this in the first place), then I think you will understand why. Dunno why, after all this time, he's still so hung up about it and dead set against its release.

The ending more than makes up for the rest of it anyway.

After watching the final episode of "Anthology" last night I am even more mystified.  The whole split is there on the screen, dealt with pretty honestly from what I could tell, including Paul and George having their fight from "Let It Be" – which makes me wonder why any of them would object to it being released when all the contentious bits are out there on tape / DVD anyway.

Maybe there is a restoration going on and we will have to wait 7 more years for an anniversary release?

Makes Paul's suppression even stranger when you know that it was George and JOHN who had the real fight that day, including alleged fisticuffs!

Which was laughed at by both John and George during the Get Back sessions. 

It's probably more an unhappy time for Paul looking back, the same for all of them.

If you read George's accounts of that whole project, as well as secondhand accounts by those close to him, he seemed FAR more upset with John's disinterest and the constant presence of Yoko (whom he NEVER got along with) than with Paul's bossiness. But of course, in typical George fashion, much as I love the guy, it's easier to just shit all over Paul, publicly and privately, than to go after Saint Lennon.
