Living in the Material World

Living in the Material World

A film by Martin Scorsese

Movie review

After tackling Bob Dylan in No Direction Home, Martin Scorsese sets out to tell the story of George Harrison via abundant archival footage, photographs and audio recordings, much of it previously unseen or unheard, which are assembled with a great sense of storytelling and flow. Also featuring interviews with the late musician’s family and friends, the film explores Harrison’s solo career, beginning with the creation of the amazing All Things Must Pass. It also offers a surprisingly fresh look at the Beatles years by focusing on Harrison and showing how he tended to be the quieter, wiser, more spiritual member of the band, yet could also be funny or get angry. He was a complex individual, with his flaws and his contradictions, like any other human being.
