Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: The Last Waltz is our best insight to a moment when the giants of the previous decade raged against time, in the shadow of an age that changed them all inalterably.
Fresh: [Gathers] so much talent into one theater that the stage buckles and the subject drops out of sight.
Fresh: The greatest rock concert movie ever made -- and maybe the best rock movie, period.
Fresh: Still sounds powerful, vibrant, imaginative and adventurous.
The best music documentary ever!
The golden standard of rocumentaries. If you are a classic rock fan, this movie is a must have!
