Beyond that, however, Rolling Stones: Live at the Max is just another concert movie, notable only for proving that the traditionally ragtag Stones know how to mount a slick arena show on the order of Michael Jackson’s. That such a spectacle might be antithetical to the spirit of rock & roll, not to mention to the Stones’ best work, is an insight I, for one, would have preferred to have been spared. B
