- An Accidental Studio review by CP Customer
A Very insightful film about film makers for anyone in the arts , wanting to live a creative life, or anyone interested in a very authentic expression of British culture. George Harrisons spiritual way of interacting with the world really proves itself in the material world , as his very un-controlling and trusting approach, allows for flashes of great art. Handmade's almost " amateur dramatic" sensibility allowed for the most genuine and uncorrupted film making and produced real classics. Even their turkeys are interesting. and show real how experimentation and a robust lack of fear of failure is essential.
