George Harrison’s son ‘found Beatles biopic hard to watch’
Washington: Beatles legend George Harrison’s son has revealed that he faced a tough time watching Martin Scorsese’s documentary on his father, as it was a repetition of his hard life on the big screen.
Dhani, who also collaborated on the film ‘George Harrison: Living in the Material World’, said that having to watch the disturbing parts of his dad’s life, including the knife attack by an intruder at his English home in 1999, proved difficult viewing.
“It’s really heavy for me. I already lived it, so it’s like watching your life fed back to you through the eyes of Scorsese, which is weirder than living it,” Contactmusic quoted him as saying.
“We’ve been working on it for more than five years now. My advice is not to plan anything after watching it. Have a nice evening off,” he added.
The project, fully supported by Harrison’s widow Olivia, documents the late legend’s rise to fame and popularity and his life as a part of the Fab Four group.
It also includes interviews from his former band mates Sir Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr as well as John Lennon’s widow Yoko Ono.
The documentary will have its UK premiere in Liverpool on October 2.
