“George Harrison: Living in the Material World”

In case you don’t live in this world, here’s what we’re talking about. Martin Scorsese directed this new documentary about George Harrison and the Beatles. Not gonna lie, it’s more about George Harrison than it is the Beatles. The Documentary came about due to the book, of the same name, that was release featuring Harrison’s side of the story. The book includes never-before seen pictures and letters released by his wife Olivia Harrison. Often referring to Harrison as “the Quiet Beatle,” he could also be considered the most under-appreciated Beatle. Senior writer for Rolling Stone, Brain Hiatt says, “George Harrison referred to both himself and Ringo Starr as economy class Beatles. John and Paul were the leaders and they were following.” Ken Dashow of CBS News said, “If you think of the Beatles as a person, you think of Paul as the face and the personality, John is the intellect. George was the soul of the Beatles.”

LA Times reviewer Robert Lloyd said the documentary is formatted like no other documentary before it. It’s not organized like any usually documentary being “especially informative.” Instead it’s more about life. “…Not so much about a life of events as of spiritual progress — a portrait of character more than of ‘a character.'” Roger Ebert said, ” Scorsese has accomplished the best documentary that is probably possible.” And in the UK, The Telegraph Music writer, Neil McCormick said, “It’s a lovely, intimate portrait of a fascinating man of contradictions, caught between his higher spiritual aspirations and a more earthy side, between peace and love and sex and drugs.”

The two part documentary will air tonight, Wednesday, and Thursday on HBO in the US at 11P.M. CT. For more information, trailers, and behind the scenes clips go to HBO.com.

  1. I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the structure of your site? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or two pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?

    • I’m always up for suggestions. Trust me, I always want to add more photos to my articles. Sometimes its just a matter of getting the right ones and having the permission to use them. THANKS!

  2. My partner and I stumbled over here from a different web address and thought I might as well check things out. I like what I see so i am just following you. Look forward to finding out about your web page again.

  3. Hmm is anyone else encountering problems with the pictures on this blog loading? I’m trying to find out if its a problem on my end or if it’s the blog. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
