Honestly, beforehand, I did know who was 'The Band' but I did know Martin Scorsese and it was a good enough reason to check this flick. For years, I have heard that this was the best concert movie ever made and after watching it, I must say indeed that he does deserve its reputation (I think 'Woodstock' is even better but it is more a festival than an actual concert). Indeed, back then, music was really about actually playing some music with some real instruments. Nowadays, most of the work is done by the producers in the control room and you can never be sure that what you hear is the real thing or someting coming out some computer. The other thing that stroke me is that even though those guys were separating, you could feel that they still enjoyed to play together. It is so refreshing compared to other bands which keep playing for decades together for no good reasons or other bands where everybody get to each other throats in some ugly split. Furthermore, the list of guests (Neil Young, Neil Diamond, Bob Dylan, Eric Clapton, Muddy Waters, Ringo Starr, Ron Wood,...) was just really impressive as well and the whole thing was just downright impressive on a music level. To conclude, I thought it was pretty awesome, I really loved it and it is definitely worth a look, especially if you like this kind of music.
