Lennon said that a mystery lived inside George. Martin Scorsese affirmed that listening to “All Things Must Pass” for the first time was like stepping into a cathedral. Olivia Harrison, his wife declared: “George had karma to fix. He didn’t want to go back to being bad and good and kind and angry, all at the same time.” But, who really was this Beatle? What path must one take to travel from underage kid in Hamburg to mystical hermit of the 70’s and from there to the Concert for Bangladesh (the first macro benefit concert in history, that he organized), and then to his production house, Handmade Films (The Life of Brian! Withnail & I!)? Who was this man? Philanthropist, hermit, advanced hippy, Sitar fan, Ravi Shankar disciple, unique guitarist, cosmic voyager… Scorsese seeks to decipher the mystery in a profound documentary that is also a reflection on success and failure, and that features tonnes of unseen footage. Yoko Ono, McCartney, Clapton, Jane Birkin, Eric Idle, Phil Spector, Ringo Starr and others, contribute to analyzing his transition from kid to Beatle, and beyond, through his illuminations and contradictions.
