The Last Waltz

Exceptional documentary filming the final performance of "The Band" who invites such distinguished singers as Bob Dylan, Neil Diamond, Eric Claption, Van Morrison, Ringo Starr, etc. The Last Waltz can be incredibly memorable and cherished by members of the Baby Boom generation but younger people probably won't find this to be particularly special. Extremely reminiscent of Rob Reiner's mockumentary, This Is Spinal Tap, done six years later.
