The Last Waltz

5

In what is rightly considered the greatest concert film ever shot, Martin Scorsese used multiple cameras and intricate lighting cues to capture The Band's farewell gig. The rousing onstage footage is spliced with laidback interviews conducted by Marty himself - still intriguing despite being mercilessly mocked in Spinal Tap - and the host of musical cameos beggars belief: Bob Dylan, Neil Diamond, Ringo Starr, Eric Clapton, Van Morrison... As Scorsese himself notes, this wasn't so much a leaving party as the end of an era.
