An outstanding rock documentary of the last concert by The Band on Thanksgiving 1976 at Winterland in San Francisco after 16 years on the road. Explores the interactions onstage in the making of music. Offstage, Scorcese interviews The Band's five members, focusing on the nature of life on the road.
