Honestly, this is one of my favorite Scorsese films
Scorsese's chance to prove he understands the Stones, after relying on them so often throughout his filmmography. He largely succeeds, crafting the most exciting concert film since Stop Making Sense. His cutting demonstrates an understanding of rock performance, unearthing the soul of the music. The best of Scorsese's music documentaries.
Martin Scorsese expertly captures the passion and energy of the Rolling Stones, who - even at their advanced age - are in top form as always. Precision editing by David Tedeschi and superb cinematography by Robert Richardson. One of the best of its kind.
I'm not a huge fan of the rock'n roll's grandfathers but I must admit that I was mesmerized by this film which is more a concert filmed than a straight documentary. The few excerpts of past interviews ridicule those who were doubtful of the band's energy and longevity. Two hours of sheer pleasure. In my opinion, a masterpiece of the genre.
