Academy Award-winning filmmaker Martin Scorsese and the world's greatest rock 'n roll band, The Rolling Stones, unite to bring audiences the musical film event, "Shine A Light," a look at The Rolling Stones, the band that defined the very idea of what a rock & roll band is, live through the eyes of Scorsese.
The trailer doesn't look bad - which doesn't mean all that much, of course, since you know you're in deep trouble when even the trailer looks bad. But, Scorsese is going to have to pull out all stops to make this more memorable than the definitive Stones documentary, Gimme Shelter.
Thoughts that occurred while watching: You think Jagger has aged really well until you see that clip of a fey, elfin Mick from the `60s, a proof point of why even characters from Hair wanted to sleep with him; I laughed out loud when I heard the line about him bursting into flames if exposed to strong light for more than a few moments... I thought that would have been Keef.
