Description

Seventeen years after joining forces as the backing band for rockabilly cult hero Ronnie Hawkins, Canadian roots rockers The Band call it quits with a lavish farewell show at San Francisco's Winterland Ballroom on Nov. 25, 1976. Filmed by Martin Scorsese, this documentary features standout performances by rock legends such as Bob Dylan, Van Morrison, Eric Clapton, Joni Mitchell and Muddy Waters, as well as interviews tracing the group's history and discussing road life.


98% Rating

"Among one of, if not the best rock movie ever made, The Last Waltz is a revealing,
electrifying view of the classic band at their height."

ROTTEN TOMATOES


"The Band's music has such intrinsic strength and resilience that it can't help
but break through those self-imposed barriers and set itself and the audience free."
WASHINGTON POST


"The greatest rock concert movie ever made -- and maybe the best rock movie, period."
CHICAGO TRIBUNE


"Seeing The Last Waltz again after many years is like revisiting an old
passion and realizing the heat is still there."
NEW YORK MAGAZINE
