Martin Scorsese’s documentary on George Harrison, “Living in the Material World,” made its US premiere at the New York Film Festival on October 4, 2011. The four hour documentary is a must see for all Beatles fans. There’s a ton of footage you’ve probably never seen before including home movies as well as newly recorded interviews with Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, Yoko Ono, Eric Clapton and Tom Petty – just to name a few. The film is a fantastic portrait of a fantastic man. Obviously as he was a Beatle, he achieved fame and success that the majority of people on earth will never get to taste and yet he spent his life searching for inner peace. The first half of the documentary covers the Beatles and the second half explores his fascination with spirituality and shows great footage from his solo career.
George’s widow, Olivia Harrison was present to introduce the film and afterwards, Martin Scorsese, Olivia and some of the key film makers did a question and answer session. Spotted at the premiere were Eric Idle, Adrian Grenier, Rita Wilson, Fisher Stevens and Wes Anderson. The film will air on HBO on October 5 and 6th, so make sure you catch it!
