"The Best Rock Movie Ever Made" (Rolling Stone, May 2002)
Director MARTIN SCORSESE's visual and aural masterpiece captures the heart, soul and spirit of an entire generation. Arguably the best concert documentary ever, this is the 1976 film account of the celebratory final concert of legendary group The Band at San Francisco's Winterland Ballroom.

To make this an unforgettable farewell performance, The Band's leader ROBBIE ROBERTSON called upon mentors, friends, and musical influences to join them on stage during a marathon concert that lasted for over 5 hours until nearly 2.30am.

The concert features incredible performances from an amazing array of musical talent such as NEIL YOUNG, RINGO STARR, ERIC CLAPTON, MUDDY WATERS, ROBBIE ROBERTSON, NEIL DIAMOND, BOB DYLAN, EMMYLOU HARRIS, RON WOOD, JONI MITCHELL, VAN MORRISON and more...

With this line up of legends, the feeling that this event should be documented led Robertson to meet with Scorsese who was in the middle of filming New York, New York. As a fan of The Band's music and with his experience as assistant director of Woodstock, Scorsese agreed to film THE LAST WALTZ.
Scorsese recruited expert film makers including cinematographer pals Michael Chapman (The Last Detail, Taxi Driver, The Fugitive), Vilmos Zsigmond (Deliverance, Close Encounters of the Third Kind, The Two Jakes), and László Kovács (Easy Rider, Five Easy Pieces, Ghostbusters) as well as production designer Boris Leven (West Side Story, The Sound Of Music, Fletch).
The film captures one of the greatest events in rock `n' roll history...what started as a concert became a celebration.

Can't Argue With That I Love Their Stuff

Probably the best concert film ever.

Emmet I'd argue for Stop Making Sense

Although I will say that Stagefright is one of the best songs about rock itself

I stumbled on this years ago and have been slightly obsessed since. Probably my favourite musical film ever... Every house should have at least 1 copy of this and for £2.99 it's an absolute bargain.

Essential for any discerning collector.
