We gave it a C-

When a Stones riff uncoils on the soundtrack of a Scorsese movie — say, in Mean Streets or The Departed — it’s always a moment of audiovisual perfection. That bodes well for this concert film, shot in fall 2006 in New York City. Christina Aguilera, Buddy Guy, and Jack White join in on a few songs, and there’s some brief archival and backstage footage, but mostly it’s Mick muggery captured in huge, craggy close-ups. (April 4)
