Shine a light on me...

Legendary director Martin Scorsese has picked the Rolling Stones for his next music documentary after the success of 2005's Dylan documentary, No Direction Home. Seamlessly cutting new and old footage with a newly recorded concert, shot by no less than ten award-winning cinematographers, the film captures all of the raw energy of the Stones live on stage. Old rubber face Mick Jagger, in particular, shows no signs of slowing down as he dances up and down the stage performing classics and previously unplayed tracks from the Stones' back catalogue, which makes this more of a straightforward concert movie than a documentary. That said, interviews with the band from days gone by does provide more than enough of an insight into the band to compliment the superbly-shot concert footage. Scorsese has crafted a movie that delivers more than enough `Satisfaction' for fans and newcomers alike.
