Still crazy after all these years,
This review is from: The Last Waltz  [DVD] (DVD)
I remembered going to see "The last waltz" as a kid and it was from this that I became a huge fan of Neil young. So off I plodded to grab the ultimate folky get together. Well wonderful is a title I would give this DVD without any doubt whatsoever.
The revamp of the original film has given the DVD a very classy feel, the soundtrack is superb and the digital remastering gives you the impression this was a film made yesterday. It was good to see such a line up of great stars, and the final track of a superb line up sing "I shall be released" makes you just wish that we cold turn music back 20 or 30 years to the days when a musician was a master of his craft.
The fact that the original film was made by a master film maker in Martin Scorsese will always feed you with the knowledge that this is not just something rushed together but something given the effort and the time to be something of pure artistry. This is without doubt a masterpiece of film making and together with some of the greatest acts of the 20th century this is the one concert DVD you should own.
