What a Show!, 15 Nov. 2002
What can I say really. Mix together the most talented musicians of their time along with the most talented film maker of the time and you get The Last Waltz.
The Band are at their best here and the special guests only enhance the spectacular talent of these guys. Everywhere the guests are outshone by Robbie and the boys, however Van Morrison's performance is amazing by any standard and even the Band themselves look at him in awe.
The special features are interesting. Interviews with Martin Scorsese and Robbie Robertson are a good insight into how a farewell concert became a piece of musical history. There is also a well stocked photo gallery, commentary by the film maker and musician and a short jamming session by some of the guests. This is a must have for every DVD collection. Buy it, keep it, show it to your kids and make sure you follow the instructions: THIS FILM SHOULD BE PLAYED LOUD.
