Scorsese’s “George Harrison: Living in the Material World” airs tonight

HollywoodNews.com: The two part, four hour Martin Scorsese documentary, “George Harrison: Living in the Material World” is a big meal, almost an encyclopedia of the late and beloved Beatle. The first part, airing tonight on HBO, is a good catch up with lots of home movies and clips–some of which we’ve seen, but placed in this context are exciting to revisit. Tonight’s show is all about the Beatles, George’s early life, and his growth as a songwriter, performer, and spiritual being.

The second part, on tomorrow night, is the gold mine though. This part addresses Harrison’s battle with cancer, the attack by a psychotic intruder inside his estate, and his 30 year marriage to Olivia Harrison. I always say, and say this again, everyone should have a widow like Olivia Harrison. She has done an amazing job of tending George’s memory. It’s her honesty and forthrightness that drives “Living in the Material World.” There is no sense of rewriting history or manipulating the facts. Working with Scorsese’s team, Olivia has produced a lasting historical document about George Harrison that he’d be proud of.

Last night, plenty of rock types showed up for the big screening at the New York Film Festival including Scorsese, Harrison, Eric Idle, Trudie Styler (with three of her extended family), Rita Wilson, Adrian Grenier, Sean Young (looking great, and very funny), Lorraine Bracco, doc maker Al Maysles, and Fran Lebowitz. No sign of Yoko Ono or Ringo Starr. Paul McCartney attended the London premiere last week.
