A must see! Anyway, movie tickets are tax deductible for me. That's the beauty of having a home-based business. See my site below for this weird formula I stumbled upon.

Seeing this in an IMAX theatre made it truly worth the experience. I'm just somewhat of a RS fan, but this film actually made me even more interested. Martin's "directing" of the film was nothing stellar - how hard can it be to film a concert? :) However, the shots before and clips away from the concert were well done. If I wasn't into the Stones, I definitely would have left early. It's a long film. But if you're looking for an up-close concert experience --- this film is the closest thing without havng to shell out the $120 or whatever it takes now. I'd love to see this kind of movie with all my favorite bands. It was really a fun experience, and very captivating.

if you're a marty scorsese fan, a rolling stones fan, one of the two, both, or just a fan of awesome music and behind the scenes looks, accompanied by a full length concert on the big screen you will LOVE this. i happen to be a fan of both and was blown away by the awesomeness of this movie. marty cuts old school footage into the film during the concert and it's brilliantly done. the stones are as amazing as ever and the beacon in NYC is gorgeous on screen. i can't wait to buy this on dvd!!!

If you're a Stones fan, you'll love this. I'm glad Scorsese survived this; he's pretty good in this himself! I love the Stones and have seen them in concert a couple times, I would like to have seen a bit more do***netary and less concert footage.

This movie is art, pure and simple. From the opening sequence, to the final encore bows, Marty captures the essence of not only the Rolling Stones (the band), but THE EVENT that every Rolling Stones concert truly is. As a dyed-in-the-wool Stones fan for 35 + years, I have attended at least one show from every tour these guys have undertaken since my first Rolling Stones concert at The (L.A.) Forum in July of 1975. This movie provides a front row ticket to "The Greatest Rock and Roll and Roll Band in The World" performing in an intimate setting, at the very top of their game. Throw in special guest stars, Christina Aguillera, Buddy Guy and the incomparable Jack White, in a duet with Mick Jagger on the classic "Loving Cup" from "Exile on Main Street" and you get the very best entertainment value for the price of a movie ticket that you will ever find. Biased? Yep - I'll readily admit to that. But trust me. The same seat you will occupy at this movie would have cost you $2500 @ The Beacon
