"Brilliant"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

A brilliant look at the origins of modern country music with some amazing footage of rural USA not to mention some interesting tin for those into old cars.

"A very good concert."
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

I have been a “The Band” fan for40 plus years, that final concert was exceptional having that cross mix of guest's all slotting in almost perfectly.

Description

It started as a concert. It became a celebration. Join an unparalleled line up of rock superstars as they celebrate "The Band's" historic 1976 farewell performance. Directed by Martin Scorsese (Raging Bull, Goodfellas), The Last Waltz is not only "the most beautiful rock film ever made" (The New Yorker)… it's "one of the most important cultural events of the last two decades" (Rolling Stone)!

Review

Martin Scorsese's 1978 capsule history of the Band is mixed with footage of the group's allegedly last performance (certainly their last performance as a quintet) in this particularly stylish concert film. Scorsese shoots the players and their sundry guests with the same flair and enthusiasm one can see in the later The Color of Money or Goodfellas. He also proves a good interviewer with Band members, particularly Robbie Robertson, whose sleepy-sexy good looks make a star-caliber impression in close-up. But the film's real hook is the stage show, which features a rotation of rock legends (Van Morrison, Joni Mitchell, Paul Butterfield, Bob Dylan, and so on) playing with the Band before a wildly appreciative audience. --Tom Keogh
