Scorsese and “George Harrison” on HBO

The very busy Martin Scorsese, whose 3D family film “Hugo” will debut in theaters around Thanksgiving, is becoming a regular on HBO. His documentary “Public Speaking,” featuring the ever-quotable Fran Lebowitz, made its debut on the cable channel late last year (and will have a local run at Northwest Film Forum in November), and now “George Harrison: Living in the Material World” premieres tonight and tomorrow on the channel, screening in two parts. Not sure if I’ll get home in time to watch this tonight, but definitely want to catch up with it at some point. Scorsese’s also got the announced biopic “Sinatra” on his plate, and I keep waiting hopefully for his follow-up to “My Voyage to Italy.” (Scorsese’s longtime editor Thelma Schoonmaker told me, in an interview some time ago, that Scorsese was at work on a tribute to British film, in the same vein as “My Voyage to Italy,” a love letter to Italian film. But he’s got a lot of projects going on at once, so this one may take a while.)
If anyone watches “Living in the Material World” tonight, do chime in with a comment . . .
