Critics reviews

For a devoted Stones fan, watching Shine a Light is a revelation. The carefully composed camera coverage grants the viewer a VIP pass that provides unique access to the show. Scorsese keeps everything spatially coherent, and we are always aware of where the musicians are in relation to one another.
