ReviewSource Eye Weekly
Review The Last Waltz remains an unusually dignified portrait of rock excess. Since its release in 1978, Martin Scorsese's documentary of the Band's star-studded "farewell" show in 1976 -- it reformed in the '80s, minus guitarist Robbie Robertson -- has been widely imitated by other concert films. Yet its most striking quality is its sense of restraint. The manic editing of most rock movies since Woodstock is largely absent. Simply put, Scorsese knew that when he had one camera on Muddy Waters belting out "Mannish Boy," there was no point to cutting away to a shot of an usher just for the sake of variety...Intercut with the concert footage are interview segments in which the nervy Scorsese tries to pal around with the infinitely cooler Band members -- the director's awe for his friend Robertson, who later created soundtracks for The Color of Money and Casino, is still very amusing.

Review The rock documentary was filmed by Martin Scorsese at a farewell concert given on Thanksgiving Day 1976 by The Band, which had been performing since 1960, in recent years as the backup band for Bob Dylan. Now the film is back in a 25th anniversary restoration. "Sixteen years on the road is long enough," says Robbie Robertson, the group's leader. "Twenty years is unthinkable." There is a weight and gravity in his words that suggests he seriously doubts if he could survive four more years...In "The Last Waltz," we have musicians who seem to have bad memories. Who are hanging on. Scorsese's direction is mostly limited to closeups and medium shots of performances; he ignores the audience. The movie was made at the end of a difficult period in his own life, and at a particularly hard time (the filming coincided with his work on "New York, New York"). This is not a record of serene men, filled with nostalgia, happy to be among friends.
