2001 would definitely be my 2nd Kubrick choice, his most influential. Dislike The Last Waltz though, and I say this is a huge Band fan. Polished, sing-along arena-rock, way too big in scope and execution for a group that prided itself in minimalism and DIY attitude. Some good performances though.
That's true. Scorsese was pushing Robertson as The Next Big Thing, including a trendy hairstyle! Apparently The Band were in a taxi and one other member told Robbie to move over as "your charisma's getting all over me"! But Robbie was never meant for stardom. Still, that fantastic performance of "Don't Do It" is worth the price of admission alone.
Anyway, out it goes on reflection (along with Citizen Kane
) and in come Lawrence of Arabia
