    Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times

    The music probably sounds fine on a CD. Certainly it is well-rehearsed. But the overall sense of the film is of good riddance to a bad time. show more

    The video was historical as well as very moving. The Band was integral to so many wonderful songs that most people don\'t even know about. The Last Waltz celebrates the amazing talent of \"the band\" behind the movement. Warts and all, they were part of the American music story.
