You Can't Always Get What You Want, unless you are a cinemafia kingpin like Martin Scorcese in which case even the Rolling Stones will bend over backwards to kiss your butt, you can tell them what songs to play, in what order, anything you want.
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.
My rating is probably related with my love for the band, but I actually had the chills during the whole film. Keith Richard's face while playing his solo on Brown Sugar was pure magic. I also loved that they played You Got the Silver, which sometimes is left behind. And Jack White played Loving Cup with them, how was this possible? It was too beautiful. To sum up, "We can not burn Mick Jagger", was the best quote.
Forse sono troppo giovane per apprezzare a pieno, ma per i fan il film deve essere una delizia. Cristina Aguilera, che di solto non mi piace, mi ha fatto venire la pelle d'oca per le splendide acrobazie vocali.
