Shine A Light

    (12A)

    This concert movie is guaranteed to please Rolling Stones fans, who will love the vivid coverage of the band’s recent concert at New York’s Beacon Theatre, interspersed with flashbacks to past interviews, notably one showing Mick Jagger speaking in an upper-class English accent rather than his more usual mockney. Given all four of the Stones — Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts and Ronnie Wood — are now eligible for bus passes, their on-stage energy is remarkable.

    And, of course, since Martin Scorsese directs the documentary, Shine a Light should also light up the lives of auteur-admiring movie buffs.

    In truth, the film owes much of its success to the work of its many magnificent cinematographers, first-rate sound crew and, above all, to editor David Tedeschi for his impressive melding of individual shots into a seamless whole.
