Thanksgiving, 1976, San Francisco's Winterland: the Band performs its last concert after 16 years on the road. Some numbers they do alone, some songs include guest artists from Ronnie Hawkins (their first boss, when they were the Hawks) to Bob Dylan (their last, when as his backup and as a solo group, they came into their own). Scorsese's camera explores the interactions onstage in the making of music. Offstage, he interviews the Band's five members, focusing on the nature of life on the road. The friendships, the harmonies, the hijinks, and the wear and tear add up to a last waltz. Written by

At the beginning of the film it just says: "THIS FILM SHOULD BE PLAYED LOUD!" See more »
Without doubt the best lineup for a free concert that also served turkey.
If you, as a music lover, have ever wondered what it would be like to
see a concert starring the very cream of the crop from the sixties and
seventies, you have that opportunity now. Martin Scorcese has produced
a film that should be mandatory viewing for anyone who calls themselves
a rock lover. While all the performances are memorable, Van Morrison,
Bob Dylan, Eric Clapton and, of course, The Band are incredible. Beyond
the music, the very premise of the concert is amazing: A big bang to
end the era, thanksgiving dinner for thousands, a wicked lineup, great
music and some really enlightening interviews. The Last Waltz is a must
see if you are a fan of the rock&roll genre, as The Band and friends
not only play their hearts out, but also pay tribute to the sound that
we all know and love.
Watch it, you won't regret the time spent.
