Get Off Of My Face

I'm not sure how reliable IrelandOn-line.com is, but a recent article on the site revealed that Mick Jagger was not entirely happy with Scorsese's [over]use of closeups in Shine A Light. According to the article, Jagger felt that "it [the closeups] was a little bit too much....I didn't care for it too much. Boring. It didn't look very good."

Sounds more like seeing all of the wrinkles and years of bad dental-work magnified on a 50-foot screen was a bit much for the 64-year old legendary frontman.

I, on the other hand, thought the film was just short of brilliant.*

*Because it's technically a "film," I've decided not to post a review to avoid any spoilers. That being said, see the movie!!!
