Rolling Stones: Shine A Light New York's Beacon Theater 2006 (Blu-ray) 2013 16:9 DTS-HD Master Audio

Widescreen. PG 13. Starring The Rolling Stones with Mick Jagger Keith Richards Ron Wood and Charlie Watts. Director: Martin Scorsese. Documentary/feature-film spanning the career of the Rolling Stones with concert footage from their Bigger Bang tour; the highest grossing tour in music history. Rating: PG-13 for brief strong language drug references and smoking

The Stones put on an inspired performance, as always, but it was the cabal of award-winning cinematographers behind the scenes who steal the show. The camera team includes Oscar-winners Robert Richardson (The Aviator), Robert Elswit (There Will Be Blood), Andrew Lesnie (Lord of the Rings) and John Toll (Legends of the Fall). Other notable cinematographers contributing to the film are Emmanuel Lubezki (Children of Men), Ellen Kuras (Summer of Sam), Stuart Dryburgh (The Piano) and Declan Quinn (Leaving Las Vegas). With experts like that behind the camera, it's little wonder that Scorsese achieves such an impressive presentation of the Beacon Theater concert. More importantly to rock fans, many of the Stones' greatest songs are performed, including "Sympathy for the Devil", "Tumbling Dice" and "Brown Sugar". Some interesting guests show up, too: legendary bluesman Buddy Guy, Christina Aguilera on "Live with Me" and Jack White (White Stripes) on "Loving Cup".

Product Reviews

After exploring the careers of the Band and Bob Dylan in The Last Waltz and No Direction Home: Bob Dylan, respectively, acclaimed director Martin Scorsese turns his lens on rock & roll legends the Rolling Stones for this feature focusing on two concerts from the band's 2006 A Bigger Bang tour. In addition to extensive coverage of the band's two-night stand at New York's Beacon Theater (an engagement that was staged as part of President Bill Clinton's lavish birthday bash), the film also features historical footage, interviews, and behind-the-scenes footage from decades past. Oscar-winning cinematographer Robert Richardson (JFK and The Aviator) supervised photography for the film, with an impressive array of A-list talents, including Andrew Lesnie, John Toll, Ellen Kuras, Anastas Michos, Stuart Dryburgh, Declan Quinn, Emmanuel Lubezki, Robert Elswit, and Albert Maysles, stepping in to insure that the Beacon performances were covered from every angle possible. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
