    Sirs, Madames,

    As noted on another thread long ago, the Cinema Lumiere in Toronto used to screen Gimme Shelter after midnight every Friday. A great hang-out for teens to get high and drunk. Twenty-two screenings of said film--I can recite it. Now own the Criterion DVD and made the Significant Other (aka the Only Real Friend of the Friend of the Friendless) watch it in a constant loop.

    YHS, etc

    Satisfaction from Gimmie Shelter is the greatest live recording of any song other than maybe The Who's A Quick One from Rolling Stones' Rock 'n Roll Circus.

    LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Oscar-winning director Martin Scorsese is joining forces with Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger to make a movie spanning three decades in the music business. Scorsese, 64, who on Sunday won the best director Oscar for "The Departed," will direct "The Long Play" and work with Jagger and the British rocker's business partner Victoria Pearman to produce the film, Paramount Pictures said on Tuesday.

    Counting the days.
  8. Please tell me Marty's not going to be doing the interviews.
    He screwed up The Last Waltz so badly that Levon wanted to kill him, Garth came off as a space mutant, and This Is Spinal Tap became possible.

    I don't care about the interviews. I just don't want to see him singing with Mick.

    Who cares what Levon thought about it? That's a good movie.

    Levon sells cartoon balloons in town.
  12. It's got good music.
    It's a horseshit movie, run by that egomaniac Robbie Robertson, who personaly wrecked The Band, and his coked-up Hollywood pal Marty. And, if you've read Levon's book, or heard him interviewed when he wasn't openly contemptuous of a Hollywood dilettante, you'd know what TLW lacks.
