2016 Latin Tour Documentary of Rolling Stones

I saw this in the theater 2 nights ago. There wasn't much information about this film online and I assumed that this was simply the theatrical version of the 2016 Stones Blu Ray/DVD release of "Havana Moon", the concert film of the Stone's free concert in Cuba. However, this film is definitely not "Havana Moon". This is a documentary of the 2016 South American trek through the continent. I've seen every Stones film and documentary and this one ranks right up there at the top. The film is really split into 3 sections that are distributed throughout the presentation. It shows the dedication and love of Stones fans throughout South America (Love the Rolingas!) and illustrates how our southern neighbors are connected to Stones music. Lots of great scenes of everyday fans. The second section showed the Stones and crews behind the scenes. The point of the film was showing how they were preparing for the Cuba concert and what all went into it but there was lots of crew/management discussions on preparations. Lots of behind the scenes with the Stones. It was fantastic. You can see the different personalities and interactions with all of them. They seem so happy nowadays. Very humorous look at the fellas on tour in their 70's. Believe it or not, Mick Jagger came off particularly well. There was some fantastic footage of Mick and Keith alone discussing their previous visit to South America in the late 60's. They discussed the origin of "Honky Tonk Women". I've heard all this before but the best part was of Keith and Mick performing "Country Honk" acoustically before the camera. It was clearly obvious that these 2 performers know exactly what each other bring to the table and it was a beautiful thing to see. Just Keith with a guitar and Mick sitting next to him singing an old Stones throwaway from 69'. Wonderful. The final section of the film was showing the Stones performing in the different venues throughout South America. This was not a concert film and it showed them performing a song or two but not in their entirety. What was striking was the hysteria of the crowds. I've been to many Stones shows over the years but I have never witnessed anything like what I saw in this film. South America is CRAZY for the Stones and I loved the fact that this film highlighted that. I'm telling you, this is a great documentary on the 2016 Southern Tour of the Americas.

The stones shine a heartwarming light on themselves

Feel-good documentary. The stones and the fans proving that sometimes you just needs music.

Havana party

Another year, another excuse for a Stones concert film, it seems. This time the cameras are out to record the onstage and backstage happenings at their 2016 tour of South America, culminating in their much-publicised free concert in Cuba, which accidentally coincided with President Obama's visit to that country in the wake of the US lifting its long-running trade blockade of the island. Obviously the Havana show is something of a big deal and much is made of it by the director here as clips about organising the show are trailed alongside countdown dates flashed on the screen like it's a space rocket launch. Personally, I could care less about the travails of the administrators setting up the show, making out as if it was almost a life or death enterprise, one woman on the organising committee actually breaks down in tears when talking about how the show has finally come together. That's called doing your job I would say. The film is at pains to show the Stones as good tourists of the various countries they visit as we see them take in some of the local culture and mixing with the different people but to be honest it all has a vaguely patrician feel about it. These guys are super-rich rock-stars and seeing Mick almost grant an audience to two local rock musicians lays it on a bit thick I thought. I did enjoy seeing and hearing some of the local stories and landscapes as the band flits in and out of Argentina, Peru, Columbia, Mexico, Brazil and Cuba, (loved the Samba version of "Happy") but of course being a Stones concert film, most of the footage centres on the band playing their hits on stage for the umpteenth time. Mick can still put himself about and hit his notes, although I could have done without seeing him dry-hump his pretty female backing singer during "Satisfaction", Keith and Ronnie play fairly raggedly as is their wont and Charlie Watts drums proficiently enough behind them. Yet again long-term bass player Darryl Jones is ignored almost completely by the cameras, confirming his invisible-man status within the group. The sight of the massive crowds in the various stadiums loving the music is however still a stirring one and with the group trotting out pretty much the same greatest hits show every night, no-one probably went home disappointed. Don't get me wrong, this is an enjoyable film of its type, slickly directed but for all the back-light supposedly reflected on the individual countries they visit, you're never left in doubt that its real purpose is to promote and bolster the pension funds of four very wealthy septuagenarians.
