Wonderful, wonderful, I adored this.
Interesting doco about the Beatles and George in particular. Did jump around a bit, especially at the beginning.
What a fantastic journey into such an important person's life. Also a great beatles history. Helps you see George's "mystical" side from his point of view, and really get what it was all about for him -- and you will be surprised at how different it was from most of our assumptions. Wonderful.
Great viewing for Beatles fans, and for all music buffs
Scorsese's music documentaries are compelling viewing for anyone with a serious interest in music and this is no exception. In terms of content, not too much new on the first half for a knowledgeable Beatles fan but a lot of new stuff in part 2. A must see for any Beatles fan or fan of music in general.
You know, I really didn't know as much about George as I thought. So, this doco by Martin Scorsese sort of filled in some gaps, using existing footage and interviews, but no obtrusive voice-over narration (this director does not insert himself into his work, at least not this time -- no personal journey with George here). As a result, there is some requirement on the viewer's part to know some of the story (um, Beatles should be recognizable to you). I found the first of the two discs, covering up to the late 60s, much more fascinating (as you might expect, even though I do own All Things Must Pass on LP -- scored for US$2.99), but I had more gaps filled by the second disc.
An alien creature infiltrates a polar camp and creates paranoia. A scifi movie that improves on the 50’s original (which is overrated). The increased tension and fear is palpable. The special effects are first rate even after all this time.
A great insight into the career of the quiet Beatle. A bit too long and the timeline seemed jumpy. The interviews were a bit one sided and without his first wife made it seem a bit lacking.
Love the music but doco did not reveal anything new about George and didn't have any real style.
This DVD is a must not only for all Beatles fans, but all fans of music. Great , fascinating viewing. Same for Disc 2.
This fits the style of many Beatles doco's with a slant on George Harrison. There are some great images and footage of him and the others as well as interviews with the people who were there with them. It's good but not quite what I was hoping.
Enjoyable insight into early Beatles and the motivation that drove them. This is more like a history of the Beatles, to some extent from George Harrison's point of view.
A must watch for Beatles fans. This movie shows photos and footage that is rare. Can't wait for disc 2 for continuation of story.
Great fresh footage of the early days of the Beatles and a brilliant insight into the most enigmatic Beatle of them all.
