George Best: All by Myself
Daniel Gordon / UK 2016 / 1h32m / Digital
He was football’s first rock and roll star – a handsome, charismatic Belfast boy who could thrill and excite the crowds with every turn of the ball. But George Best was a flawed genius - brought down by drink, temptation and depression. Daniel Gordon ('Hillsborough') recounts the tale of this beloved but be-devilled superstar with riveting footage and testimony by those who knew him at his best—and worst. This skilfully wrought documentary draws you into the drama and helps us understand just why an estimated quarter of a million people lined the route of his funeral cortege to mourn his tragic passing.
