Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: An absorbing and beautifully made film in its own right, whose 208 minutes mostly fly by.
Fresh: It's a seductive and moving scrapbook made with an outward artistry and an inward conventionality.
Fresh: A fitting, sonorous tribute to the pop idol, movie producer, spiritual searcher and constant gardener.
Rotten: You'd like to think that being one of the Beatles had to be more fun than this long and surprisingly dry Martin Scorsese documentary makes it seem.
C'mon! The guy was a Beatle. Nuff said ...
The quiet one spiritual blossums
This I'''ve seen a copy of from when it was on TV,it was incrediably good,very spiritual fuil of great information and very intimate,he went to so much to keep his privacy and his home life sacred and serene,my one wish would of been that he could of played with jerry Garcia pre-1990 they would of complimented each other nicely,it was george that after I became clean and sober,added to my spiritual quest and he was always about things being real and of substance because he knew that we don't get to take this with us into the here after,so be the best person you can now,working on ourselves be it prayer and deep meditation,because you'll benefit greatly Namaste 33 1/3 Larry E.smith
He wasn't really that quiet
This movie almost made me cry, due to the fact of what George went through and the fact my favorite Beatle do so much in such little time. This deserves to be watched by all, it did change the way I look on things by looking at the world through George's eyes. 5 stars, bar none. Martin Scorsese has created a masterpiece.
