Boasting one of the most mind-blowing lineups imaginable to any rock music lover, The Last Waltz has become a time-honored slice of Americana passed around like pecan pie from one generation to the next. Thrown on Thanksgiving Day ‘76, Martin Scorsese masterfully captured the best damned concert party in the history of rock ‘n roll, and framed it as the end of an era — or as a charmingly stoned Richard Danko puts it, “the beginning of the beginning of the end of the beginning.” After sixteen years on the road, The Band saw it fit to go out in flames of glory, inviting their friends along for the ride — the likes of which include Dr. John, Neil Young, Bob Dylan, Joni Mitchell, Muddy Waters, Neil Diamond and a bevy of other fancily-clad big names. Everyone is dressed to the nines in cartoonishly hip blazers and bottoms, and all perform at superhuman levels of harmonic perfection — making this classic doc truly live up to its immortal tagline: “It started as a concert. It became a celebration. Now it’s a legend.”
The Last Waltz Dir. Martin Scorsese, 1978, 35mm, 117 min.
