Rich in mesmerizing archival footage, Martin Scorsese’s expansive documentary on the Beatles’ lead guitarist—and of one of the greatest musicians of the 1960s and ’70s—traces in detail all aspects of Harrison’s professional and personal life.
What a fascinating portrait into someone's life. What's more, into the unconventional life of the unconventional Beatle. It's the story of George Harrison's quest for meaning and his reconciliation of fame. Beautiful, haunting & tragic.
I had no idea this was going to go for 3 and a half hours. I left the cinemas at about 12:30am. But it was completely worth it. Harrison is my favourite Beatle, so I'm obviously pleased that this film was made. Everything from the interviews to the photographs was fantastic and at times, even humorous.
Just watched it last night and have to admit as a Beatles fan that I am, that part II was definitely more interesting and intense that part I, the latter adding little or nothing to what was already known about George Harrison's status with the Beatles. Still can't figure out if I'd actually enjoy it weren't a Beatles fan.
