Martin Scorsese and the Rolling Stones unite in "Shine A Light," a look at The Rolling Stones." Scorcese filmed the Stones over a two-day period at the intimate Beacon Theater in New York City in fall 2006. Cinematographers capture the raw energy of the legendary band.Written by
The two Rolling Stones concerts filmed for "Shine a Light" took place at the Beacon Theatre in Manhattan. It is their second film to be shown in the IMAX format. Because of a lack of appropriate IMAX cinemas in Manhattan upon the release of the IMAX film "At The Max" in 1991, the film had to be shown at a non-conventional venue: the Beacon Theatre. See more »

Sometimes you might feel that the rock concert movie genre hasn't moved much since "Woodstock". Which doesn't mean Scorsese doesn't manage the tradition in a very proper way.
You certainly have the concert feeling here. But Stones have made it both better and worse. There are ups and downs in this performance, with an absolute peak from the blues man Buddy Guy entering stage.
The clips from old Stones interviews are entertaining, but what's the purpose of having them there? If they are supposed to be included, they should have taken a bigger place, telling something more of this band, which in itself forms essentials of rock history. Anyway, good work by Scorsese, although traditional.
