On hand to help say goodbye to this influential rock group were some of the most acclaimed musicians of the late 1960s and '70s.

Ratings and Reviews
Critics Consensus: Among one of, if not the best rock movie ever made, The Last Waltz is a revealing, electrifying view of the classic band at their height.
Outstanding '70s concert docu has smoking, drinking.
