The Last Waltz has inexplicably been called the greatest rock documentary of all time. Directed by Martin Scorsese this 1978 film showcases the extraordinary final shows of The Band at San Francisco’s Winterland Ballroom in November 1976. With its mix of live performance, studio takes and quirky and intimate interviews and showcases a wide range of talent. The film is a definitive document of a particular time in popular music. The Last Waltz has been revisited for decades, and it remains a show for the ages. Famously, the film begins with a simple title card informing the projectionist that “this film should be played loud”, making that single frame one of the most truthful articulations ever set to film.
