GEORGE HARRISON: LIVING IN THE MATERIAL WORLD (Television Release USA 2011)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.7|5.0 Starsìììì

George Harrison: Living In The Material World—a 3 hour and 30 minute gem of pure viewing pleasure—doesn’t walk around the facts of the Beatles' lives. With tremendous sensitivity to the importance of seeking truth on our terms, Director Martin Scorsese not only shows the impact of the Beatles within the musical field but explores their impact as they delved into Eastern religions. While this film primarily is the story of George Harrison, how he lived and how he died, the Beatles as a group are shown to be so deeply intertwined that it is difficult to separate or interpret George’s story outside of the group. This documentary is a monumental feat that Martin Scorsese accomplishes to perfection. BRAVO, BRAVO!!!

Storyline

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

Yes. Whether a Beatles’ fan or not, this film provides 100% value. Despite the length, there is no loss of interest nor does any part of the film flag.
