3) She Was Hot
4) All Down the Line

Though the actual track 'Shine a Light' from Exile on Main Street is not played during the (film version of this) set, it is an excellent title for this rock documentary as Martin Scorcese is shining a light so to speak on the Stones themselves, and this light shines mighty bright and mighty close. But Scorcese is not as invasive as you might expect. And this documentary/concert film does not feel like an expose as much as a celebration of a band that still has some kick left in it. Instead of being overly reverent and even elegaic (as perhaps he was in The Last Waltz) Scorcese, takes a lighthearted & lighthanded approach. The first thing that Scorcese documents is the planning of the show itself and the miscommunications that took place between what the Stones wanted (a big venue) and what Martin wanted (an intimate one); miscommunications that could have been avoided had the band been available to actually meet face to face with Scorcese, but these and other miscommunications are treated more as running jokes than as genuine problems.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nothing wrong with nostalgia August 3, 2008
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
If you are a Stones fan, then just buy it and enjoy; the negative reviewers miss the point. Towards the end of a long and fantastic career it's all about the band having fun; for the viewer its all about watching them experience that joy. And if you feel the need to quibble about the price or production values, then you shouldn't be buying such a DVD in the first place. The BluRay looks wonderful and the concert is nice and 'up close'. One of the most interesting aspects is watching how MJ tries to control the band with a raised eyebrow or nod here and there, or moving to gently push KR back to center when he goes 'off the plot'. It beats me why anyone would quibble on little details that aren't relevant to the central theme - its a celebration of one of the world's true entertainment super-groups. Relax.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mick and Martin April 28, 2008
Going to see a concert nowadays takes all one's resources. Ticket prices often go up to three digits, and most likely the best view is watching the band perform on a video screen. Sometimes people (myself included) are willing to travel long distances to see one's favorite acts perform onstage. Getting to see the biggest bands, like Paul McCartney, U2, and The Dave Matthews Band is difficult at best. Ironically, the cost of a ticket to see The Rolling Stones play in Martin Scorsese's documentary/concert film 'Shine a Light' is about the same as it would cost to see a live concert when many of their featured songs were popular. It ain't like it used to be.

However, the sheer power and able musicianship haven't gone stale nor retro, so the film is a real treat for those of us who have all but given up on seeing them in person.

It is a testament to Scorsese's directing abilities that the prologue, the intermittent vintage vignettes, and the conclusion are uncluttered. We get our introduction to the band and the various methods of setting up the stage, the play lists, and the operating procedures of the filming. Mick Jagger and Martin Scorsese go at the logistics in a way that has tension, but never garners animosity or loses affection for the project. In many ways, it is a labor of love for both sides, but it is Scorsese who seems the most piqued by the end.

On stage it becomes a celebration. There's no arguing these guys are dedicated. After an exuberant rendition of "All Down the Line," an early song, Charlie Watts looks directly into the camera and with a few facial gestures lets us know without pretense how demanding it is to be one of the nimblest drummers of one of the most celebrated rock bands ever.

"Shine a Light" captures the Stones at the end of a long tour and even longer career. I saw them in Vegas about a week before this concert, and they were at their best. Mick Jagger's father had just passed. It's a great concert. I also saw this film the day it opened. I've seen the Stones four times, since the 69 tour, and all of their DVD's and/or movies.
Don't believe all these film school losers reviewing the film or wannabe rockers putting down the Stones because they're old. Imagine film school students without credits putting down Martin Scorsese! The guest stars, Christina, Buddy Guy, Jack White, rock. One might wonder why they should buy "Shine a Light" as they already own Stone's DVD's, a fair question. This film features songs from "Some Girls", the best Stone's album for 30 years: "Some Girls" (but without the lyrics about black girls who just want to get..."; "Just My Imagination"; "Faraway Eyes" (country song with hillbilly humor); and "Shattered". Christina and Mick make the best Stone's duet since Tina Turner and Mick mixed it up for "Live Aid" on the "Let it Bleed" album classic, "Live with Me". Buddy Guy gives the movie a party rousing "Champagne & Reefer", an old Muddy Water's song. How appropriate, as the Stones took their name from a Muddy Water's song. Never before on DVD have we seen the Stones perform Keith's song, "Connection", a very old song from the sixtie's "Between the Buttons" album. Classics from "Exile on Main Street" also spice up the film: "All Down the Line"' "Loving Cup" (Jack White); "Tumbling Dice"; and "Shine a Light". Two of my favorite old Stone's songs from the 60's are here: "I'm Free" and "As Tears Go By" from the "december's children" album. Never before have we seen the Stone's play the 80's classic, "She Was Hot".
