    After more than 40 years, the Rolling Stones are still raking in the dough
      Shine is a vanity project from a band and filmmaker who have nothing left to prove and little to be vain about. It’s a warts-and-all peek at this particular performance — a charity benefit for Bill Clinton’s 60th birthday. It’s a look at Scorsese — who used 12 Stones songs in four of his films, “Gimme Shelter” in three — trying to micromanage a concert the way he might a film set. In the process, both band and filmmaker are shown readily admitting that what they’re doing is creating more Stones product. What’s not surprising is Scorsese and band emerge looking well. The film-show includes 18 songs, from the so-so to the disarmingly sincere and the damned near sublime. Plus, there’s a matter-of-fact aspect that makes Light more than just another doc for die-hard fans. As the lines on the Stones' aging faces make clear, the rock spoils go the survivors, but so do age and constantly having to be the Rolling Stones.

  • Mr.Brooks

      The titular Mr. Brooks (Kevin Costner) is Portland, Ore.’s man of the year, a box mogul (not kidding) with a beautiful house, a beautiful wife (Marg Helgenberger), a beautiful daughter (Danielle Panabaker), and a private studio where he works on ceramics. Oh, and he’s also got this alter ego/invisible friend/whatever named Marshall (William Hurt) who pushes Brooks to do what he really wants — which is his unknown life as the thumbprint serial killer, who sneaks into people’s homes, shoots them, poses the corpses for private photo sessions, and then disappears leaving no clue save a solitary thumbprint.
