but there's nothing below the surface.
This is the best Stones movie in a long time...maybe since 1972. The sound is great: loud and
guitars up front where they should be. And the band is in fine form.
There are moments when they just transcend and you realize what a monster band this was at their youthful peak. That's not to say thay haven't aged well. Jagger, to my eyes and ears, is as good or better a singer and performer on stage than he has ever been. They guy just defies expectations and he really owns this film. Without him and his professionalism at the helm, I don't know if this band would have faired as well over the past 15 years.
Keith is another matter. There's a sadness for me in watching Keith. He used to be the heart & soul of the band. maybe he still is. But he doesn't play as well as he used to, doesn't even seem as central to every song as he once was. Unlike Jagger, you can see him blatantly sacrifie his playing during moments of mugging and posing for the crowd. Sad.
