One of the best, simplest, and most joyous films ever made

  • Summary: In the words of Robbie Robertson, "The Last Waltz" began as a concert and turned into a celebration. There is no word that can be used to describe "The Last Waltz" better than 'celebration'.

Glare of the Spotlight

  • Summary: This movie was only a name to me until I saw it last year. Immediately, I was riveted by everything about it. I've always been a casual fan of The Band, and of Levon Helm in particular.

Take a load off, Annie.

  • Summary: Either I'm getting older or the world's getting younger, but when a rock concert documentary film airs on TCM, there should be some sort of pause for a reality check. In a salute to WALTZ'S director Martin Scorsese, the film aired on TCM over the New Year's weekend.

Life-Changing

  • Summary: If you're not completely in love with The Band before watching this movie, you certainly will be after. This is one of those life-changing-you-laugh-you-cry-you-can't-stop-thinking-about-it kind of movies. The music is unbelievable and the interviews are entertaining at the least.

Without doubt the best lineup for a free concert that also served turkey.

  • Summary: If you, as a music lover, have ever wondered what it would be like to see a concert starring the very cream of the crop from the sixties and seventies, you have that opportunity now. Martin Scorcese has produced a film that should be mandatory viewing for anyone who calls themselves a rock lover.

Some Diamonds

Frank P, IMDb

  • Summary: Standouts include-- Rick Danko performing a soulful rendition of "It makes no difference". Eric Clapton jamming with Robbie Robertson shows that Robbie is an excellent, and I believe, under rated guitarist. "The night they drove old Dixie down" is another great performance with Levon belting it out.

Amazing

  • Summary: Rock music at it's best. What a performance by Robbie and the band. They just don't make music like they used to nowadays. The energy and true musicianship that went into this concert was phenomenal.

Out of the Shadow of Woodstock

2 November 2003
  • Summary: Martin Scorsese's documentary has been labelled a time capsule of an era, and whilst this type of reference usually sounds overstated, there is no doubting the accomplishment of this film as an event.

One of ulimate concert films of all time.

Laura, IMDb

  • Summary: You don't have to be a die-hard fan of The Band to appreciate this concert film. Martin Scorsese turns this farewell performance into a lasting tribute to one of the greatest bands of all time, and to many of their contemporaries as well.

A Classic

  • Summary: Forget "Woodstock". Forget "Gimme Shelter". "Let It Be'? Forget that too. This is, truly, THE greatest rock and roll film ever made. Why? Well, try for a moment to forget that the actual performance itself features the great artists it does (including The Band) and focus on the film itself.
