The Last Waltz Rated U

The Last Waltz

Dir. Martin Scorsese. USA, 1978. 1h 57m. Starring Robbie Robertson, Neil Young, Joni Mitchell, Bob Dylan, Van Morrison, Ringo Starr.

In 1976, Canadian roots rockers The Band call it quits with a lavish farewell show at San Francisco's Winterland Ballroom. Filmed by Martin Scorsese, this documentary features standout performances by rock legends such as Bob Dylan, Van Morrison, Neil Young, Joni Mitchell and Muddy Waters, as well as interviews tracing the group's history and discussing road life.

‘It's arguably the most beautiful of rock movies, while the musical highlights - 'The Weight' with the Staples Singers, Van Morrison's firebolt 'Caravan', every Levon Helm vocal - still astound.’ ★★★★ Tom Huddlestone, Time Out

‘The Last Waltz takes a probing, intimate look at the quintet’s sometimes fraught history. The results are simultaneously thrilling and poignant.’ BFI Online
