Worth Watching - March 30: Martin Scorsese's Shine a Light Trailer
by Alex Billington
March 30, 2008
I'm not sure how we missed this trailer before, but since it's hitting theaters next weekend I thought it would be worth running. Shine a Light is Martin Scorsese's career-spanning documentary on the Rolling Stones featuring concert footage from their "A Bigger Bang" tour. If you love the Rolling Stones, then I'm sure you're already going to be in theaters seeing this. However, if you're not exactly a die-hard fan, then hopefully you'll still let Oscar-winning director Marty Scorsese take you on a mesmerizing journey through the careers of Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts, and Ronnie Wood.
Watch the trailer for Shine a Light:
Shine a Light is directed by Oscar-winning filmmaker Martin Scorsese of Goodfellas, Gangs of New York, The Aviator, and The Departed. The film debuts in both regular and IMAX theaters on April 4th. The poster is featured below.

Great Trailer, I can't wait to see this in IMAX. I love both Scorsese and The Rolling Stones. Seems like a great documentary.

Let's not forget that Scorsese has also directed _The Last Waltz_ (1978), featuring The Band, which may just be the greatest band documentary/movie of all time. I think it's interesting that the trailer fails to mention this! Regardless, I'm a big fan of Scorsese's work -- as well as the Stones -- and will be checking this out in IMAX as soon as possible.

Not bad! Love Martin Scorsese's work and The Rolling Stones are a great legendary band! So NICE to see that no one attacks them for their age nor because they are STILL around!! In the near future I, hope to see such compelling flicks made with a few of the iconic bands of the 80s that are STILL around and STILL KICKING ASS like: 1.) Duran Duran 2.) Depeche Mode 3.) R.E.M. 4.) INXS 5.) The Cure 6.) Erasure 7.) Pet Shop Boys With such diversity, each of these bands have withstood the test of time --despite NEGATIVE press and changing times within the music industry. These films would be freakin awesome!!

I got a chance to catch an early screening of this last week. Brilliant! The Stones are on fine form and Scorsese captures them beautifully. I felt compelled to hoot and clap after every song.

This movie is really great! Having just seen the film twice - I needed to do that to check how good it was. Thanks to http://www.torrentoff.com I can watch it at home at any time I want! Those guys reach across all age divisions with their music. So, they are alive legend
