“George Harrison: Living in the Material World” documentary a treasure for fans
The life of rock icon George Harrison is documented impressively through photos, writings, film footage, music and interviews in the film “George Harrison: Living in the Material World,” directed by Academy Award-winner Martin Scorsese.
The movie will premiere in two parts, beginning from 8 to 9:35 p.m. Oct. 5 and concluding from 8 to 10 p.m. Oct. 6 on HBO.
The best part of the documentary is that a lot of Harrison’s life’s story is told in his own words, as well as through interviews with people including his family, Eric Clapton, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, George Martin, Tom Petty, Phil Spector, and former Beatles members Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr.
Various sides of Harrison’s personality are shown and discussed, with the assorted visual and musical elements woven together, from his start with the Beatles, their break-up, his spiritual journey, his solo musical accomplishments and much more.
In one segment of the documentary, Harrison’s Traveling Wilburys bandmate Petty talks about Harrison calling him when their fellow bandmember Roy Orbison passed away.
During their phone conversation, Petty said Harrison told him, “He’ll be OK. He’ll be OK. He’s still around,” he said. “Just listen. He’s still around.”
Thankfully, all you have to do is simply listen to the sublime “Something,” or any of his and/or the Beatles’ music, and George Harrison is still around, too.
