Looking forward to this, even though Scorsese hasn't made a movie I've loved since "Casino". "The Departed" was pretty good, but I really don't know what the hell he sees in DiCaprio, aside from his bankability maybe. Dude's certainly no DeNiro nor Keitel.

(I really should attempt to see "No Direction Home" one of these days) 

GEORGE: In fact, The Detroit Sound. JOHN: In fact, yes. GEORGE: In fact, yeah. Tamla-Motown artists are our favorites. The Miracles. JOHN: We like Marvin Gaye. GEORGE: The Impressions, Marvin Gaye. PAUL & GEORGE: Mary Wells. GEORGE: The Exciters. RINGO: Chuck Jackson. JOHN: To name but eighty.

Ok we got news!!!

 

http://www.thewrap.com/tv/arti.....-doc-29062

 

HBO has picked up the North American TV rights to Martin Scorsese's George Harrison documentary "George Harrison : Living in the Material World," HBO announced on Wednesday.

 

The film -- which, like Scorsese's Rolling Stones and Bob Dylan documentaries "Shine a Light" and "No Direction Home: Bob Dylan," was edited by David Tedeschi -- will debut in two parts on October 5 and 6 of this year.

Interviews with Eric Clapton, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, George Martin, Paul McCartney , Yoko Ono, Tom Petty, Phil Spector, Ringo Starr and Jackie Stewart will help to tell Harrison's story, along with home movies, performance footage and photographs.

"I will never forget the first time I heard [Harrison's 1970 triple-album solo debut]  ‘All Things Must Pass ,’ the overwhelming feeling of taking in that all glorious music for the first time," Scorsese said. "It was like walking into a cathedral.  George was making spiritually awake music – we all heard and felt it – and I think that was the reason that he came to occupy a very special place in our lives.  So when I was offered the chance to make this picture, I jumped at it."

“When Martin Scorsese brings a project to HBO, we all know it is going to be very special, and he has added to that body of work with this monumental film on George Harrison ,” Michael Lombardo, president, HBO programming, said of the movie.

Harrison passed away in 2001, at the age of 58.

You stubbed your toe?

Or, like me, you are very dissapointed that it's going to be on HBO rather than on the big screen in theaters. If that's the case...

Well considering that my chances to see it in the big screen were almost nil, I prefer a HBO release.

Maybe I am, maybe I'm not.

But in actuality, I don't have HBO, so I guess I'll have to buy the DVD in 2012 (or convince my parents to get it. I'll try the latter, if only to get Bill Maher's show and this).

Grrrr...that stinks. Oh well, maybe someone will end up sneaking it on to YouTube.

It's a classic move. Get plently of hype for George, then have Yoko use all that awareness for John's 71th, and then continue riding the attention to big sales. Classic. Olivia and Yoko would deny it, but I find it much more then coincidence.

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8I'm not saying it's a bad thing, just that this certainly went into the release date. It's not bad, it's genius.
