George is my favorite Beatle, and I'm glad Scorsese made this huge effort to bring a monumental musician and human being to the screen in what is possibly the best documented portrait of him. Sadly, it is not a thorough portrait, as it skimps essential stages in his life -his childhood, his early progress in music- in favor of what the popular culture deems relevant of him. Still, it is beautiful and very moving.
It thoroughly covers in a chronologically way, the different phases of Harrison's career as musician, his private life and the ceaseless search for a spiritual side in himself. Full Review and Rating: http://alwayswatchgoodmovies.blogspot.com/2013/01/george-harrisonliving-in-material-world.html
Beautifully and tenderly presented, this two-part documentary on George Harrison's life shows his music, his spirit, love and friendship that seems to have affected most in his path. Delving beyond his superstardom into growing as a human being, laughing in the face of "being an adult", this is a very inspirational film to me.
I found this really, really enjoyable and easy to watch (maybe thats because I love George Harrison and music biopics in general). The film moved along at a fast-ish pace which kept things interesting although it did feel slightly rushed, despite filling 3 hours comfortably, and as if it was skipping out large (albeit probably boring) sections of his life. However it us a must see for Beatles/George Harrison fans.
if hugo was solid filmmaking, then this is a fucking masterpiece. the impossible made possible, a brilliant document on the beatles and for my view, the most interesting of them all. it is touching to the last, it delves right into the man, both the good and the bad. there are things missing, like how george met patty, but you cannot include everything over such a running time.
