Overview

Shine a Light

After exploring the careers of the Band and Bob Dylan in The Last Waltz and No Direction Home: Bob Dylan, respectively, acclaimed director Martin Scorsese turns his lens on rock & roll legends the Rolling Stones for this feature focusing on two concerts from the band's 2006 A Bigger Bang tour. In addition to extensive coverage of the band's two-night stand at New York's Beacon Theater (an engagement that was staged as part of President Bill Clinton's lavish birthday bash), the film also features historical footage, interviews, and behind-the-scenes footage from decades past. Oscar-winning cinematographer Robert Richardson (JFK and The Aviator) supervised photography for the film, with an impressive array of A-list talents, including Andrew Lesnie, John Toll, Ellen Kuras, Anastas Michos, Stuart Dryburgh, Declan Quinn, Emmanuel Lubezki, Robert Elswit, and Albert Maysles, stepping in to insure that the Beacon performances were covered from every angle possible.

Gorgeous cinematography and lush, full & rich sound track courtesy of Blu-ray's fatter data stream. Blue-ray technology is often wasted on remastered concert footage from yesteryear. It seems to work best when the footage is shot with Blu-ray format in mind. This DVD is one example where Blu-ray is worth paying the additional $10. Scorsese manages to capture an intimacy of a group whose individual members lead very private lives. The director also adeptly relates the "feel" of the venue and eclectic composition of the audience. The Stones are far more blues musicians than they are rock musicians and, as such, are timeless, regardless of chronological age. Solid performance and great track selection. Will please new and old fans, alike. For more by this writer: www.VirtualVice.com

Many parts of the concert were magical. The Buddy Guy performance of &amp quot Champagne and Reefer,&amp quot is brilliant! &amp quot Just My Imagination,&amp quot is a rare treat as well. I just had wished they had done a few more obscure songs rather than the overplayed hits. Also, there could have been much more documentary footage with classic clips as well as the concert preperation. All in all though, very entertaining.
