Shine a Light spans the career of rock and roll band The Rolling Stones. Martin Scorsese filmed the Rolling Stones for two nights at New York City's Beacon Theater on October 29 and November 1, 2006. Footage from the shows will be intercut with backstage footage, historical clips and contemporary interviews with the band. The shows were noted for their star-studded crowds, including former President Bill Clinton. Shine A Light will be the Stones' fifth theatrically released motion picture, following 1970's Gimme Shelter, 1974's Ladies and Gentleman: The Rolling Stones, 1982's Let's Spend the Night Together, and 1992's The Rolling Stones At the Max.
May the good lord. .
One of the best movies i have ever seen. It is very different from any other rolling stones concert video you would see because martin scorsese is the director. The only bad thing is the close ups on Mick's face. you can really see EVERY wrinkle clearly. An amazing set list. Highlights for me were Just My Imagination and You Got The Silver.
I'm not a particularly big Stones fan but this film blew me away. It shows the band in a relatively intimate setting and as you would expect is superbly shot by Scorcese. What I found compelling was the camaraderie between the band and they clearly get a buzz from playing together. There is some good use of archive interviews. There are great cameos from Jack White, Buddy Guy and (I hate to say) Christine Aguilera. I really liked the two songs in which Keith Richards takes lead vocals, Silver and Gold and Connections. The set list combines a perfect balance of rarities and classics. By far the best concert movie I have ever seen.
greatest rock 'n' roll band in the world
this film shows todays so called rockers how it is done. if in doubt leave it to the professionals by the band that epitomises rock 'n' roll. only stumbling block there is no mick taylor
