Great music, good times, and that ol' Scorsese charm. The Last Waltz is not only a stunning and rhythmic melding of two art forms, but an intricately weaved narrative about the band, The Band.
Unlike many other concert films that are made nowadays, you can feel the level of craft and thought put into every shot of every song and sequence. Each band member isn't just part of the whole, but a unique individual. It is a film that is complete yet fragmented, flowing yet stationary, the truth yet manipulation.
