Why the Band’s ‘The Last Waltz’ Is the Greatest Concert Movie of All Time

“This film should be played loud!” It’s a cliché now, a concert-movie disclaimer that’s become the equivalent of that hippie-dippy tagline from those Freedom Rock compilation ads (“Well, turn it up, maaaaan.”) But in the late Seventies, when it first flashed onscreen in all white font against a stark black background before the credits of The Last Waltz, you knew it meant business. Keep moving that volume knob clockwise, folks. Let the needle swing into the red.

And then we begin at the end, with the weary members of the Band shuffling onstage to hoarse cheers. “You’re still here, huh?” asks guitarist Robbie Robertson. “We’re gonna do one more song, and that’s it.” Drummer Levon Helm stretches; bassist Rick Danko smokes a cigarette and wishes everyone a Happy Thanksgiving. They’ve been at this five or more hours now, poring through their back catalog and backing every celebrity guest along

The critically-acclaimed reboot of One Day at a Time has been cancelled yet again, though the show’s producers and stars hope the third time is the charm.

The Latin-centric reboot of the hit 1970s and 1980s sitcom debuted on Netflix in 2017 and lasted for three seasons before it was canceled by the streamer, with Pop TV picking it up for the fourth season, which debuted in March. 

Now Pop TV has officially canceled the show for a second time, though Variety reports that Sony Pictures Television is shopping it elsewhere, as the show’s stars and creators react to the news on social media.

Tesla market cap hits $500 billion for the first time

Tesla finished the trading day Tuesday with a market cap greater than $500 billion for the first time after its stock price surpassed $527.48 per share.

Tesla’s enterprise multiple, or its enterprise value relative to EBITDA, exceeded 130 based on the company’s last 12 months, according to Factset. With a forward enterprise multiple of 63, Tesla shares closed at $555.38, up 6.4% for the day.

The company has been on a tear this year, with its stock price increasing more than fivefold. While the mark is largely symbolic, it underscores CEO Elon Musk’s push for growth. Tesla became the first $100 billion publicly listed U.S. carmaker in January.

In October, Tesla reported its fifth consecutive quarter of profit on third-quarter revenue of $8.77 billion. The company also reported earlier that month it delivered 139,300 vehicles during the third quarter, a record for the carmaker. 

Tesla is set to join the
