The Last Waltz

The Last Waltz
Dir: Martin Scorsese, 117 minutes, 1978.
Sun. Nov. 20 at 6pm

Thanksgiving, 1976, San Francisco’s Winterland: the Band performs its last concert after 16 years on the road. Some numbers they do alone, some songs include guest artists from Ronnie Hawkins (their first boss, when they were the Hawks) to Bob Dylan (their last, when as his backup and as a solo group, they came into their own).

Scorsese’s camera explores the interactions onstage in the making of music. Offstage, he interviews the Band’s five members, focusing on the nature of life on the road. The friendships, the harmonies, the hi-jinks, and the wear and tear all add up to a last waltz. The list of performers is endless Eric Clapton, Bob Dylan, Neil Young, EmmyLou Harris, Ringo Starr, Joni Mitchell and many more.
