Originally released in 1978, The Last Waltz is merely one of the best concert movies ever made. Scorsese keeps it polished but raw: great music numbers blended perfectly with time-tested tales on life on the road. This movie chronicles am epic tribute to one of rock's greatest groups, The Band. The "Last Waltz" conveys how musically great The Band was, with stars as diverse as Bob Dylan, Neil Diamond, Neil Young, Van Morrison and Muddy Waters showing up to play with this fabulous Canadian band.
