  1. The greatest rock concert movie ever made -- and maybe the best rock movie, period.
  2. One of the rare rock films that produces the effect of a live concert: After each number, the audience erupts into applause.

    Is "The Last Waltz" the greatest rock movie of all time? It makes its case persuasively in a restoration overseen by director Martin Scorsese and producer Robbie Robertson that's been released to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the concert it made famous.
  4. To see the film in this meticulously restored and remixed version is like watching it for the first time, so clear is the sound, so vivid the sights.

    From a technical perspective, it's undoubtedly the most impressive and authentic concert film ever made.

    Martin Scorsese's The Last Waltz proves Andrew's point by gathering so much talent into one theater that the stage buckles and the subject drops out of sight.

    What started out as a concert transformed into a celebration. In the fall of 1976, The Band played their final concert, documented by Martin Scorsese, and is widely considered one of the finest rock films ever made. A wide range of musical quests: Muddy Waters, Eric Clapton, Van Morrison, Bob Dylan, Neil Young, Dr. John, Emmylou Harris among others. Martin Scorsese masterfully captures their interactions on stage, while off stage he interviews each member (Robbie Robertson, Rick Danko, Richard Manuel, Garth Hudson, Levon Helm) sharing their experiences from sixteen years on the road. To quote Robbie Robertson: "We wanted it to be more than a "final concert". We wanted it to be a celebration: The Last Waltz. For additional reviews visit: Expand
