Crop And Save
I was very disappointed by this doco. Being a Scorsese film I had high hopes, but I was let down. It felt very jumbled, particularly the beginning where it just kept chopping and changing from one piece of footage to the next, and one person to the next. It did get better as it went along thankfully. I'd say Part 2 was better than Part 1.
I like George Harrison, but I didn't know enough about him to really keep track on who a few of the people were in the film. I would have been nice for them to have been introduced somehow. It just seemed like the doco was bits of stuff just stuck together and wasn't overly coherent. Lennon's death and Harrison's reaction to it was barely touched on. It was quite all quite clinical and unmoving.
If you want to see a documentary done very well, see SENNA. Living in a Material World pales in comparison. After watching Senna I was speechless for about an hour and it has effected me ever since. Living in Material World? Well it didn't even really effect me while watching it. While leaving this movie I wished that Senna had gone for the same length as this movie and that Living in a Material World had gone for less than 2.
Living in the Material World is not a fitting tribute to a great man.
