Damn! Keith Richard’s Wrinkles are Three Stories Tall!

Near the end of Martin Scorsese’s epic Goodfellas, the main character, a low-level mobster, spins hopelessly out of control thanks to coke, sex, and violence. Accompanying this goomba gone wild meltdown are The Rolling Stones tunes “Gimme Shelter” and “Monkey Man.” The music radiates menace and certain disaster, the perfect soundtrack for Scorsese’s morally bankrupt gangster. Scorsese also used Stones music to highlight the unraveling of other ne’er-do-wells in Casino.

It’s fitting that Scorsese -- having done documentaries on The Band, Dylan, and the blues-- now turns his camera on the Stones for the concert documentary Shine a Light, which captures the band gigging in 2006 at New York City’s cozy Beacon Theater. This Friday, see the Stones rip it up on the Museum of Science and Discovery’s IMAX screen (401 SW Second St., Fort Lauderdale) when Shine premiers. Tickets cost $10 to $12.
