Rolling Stones film ‘Shine a Light’ combines Martin Scorsese’s two greatest loves

 

Oscar-winning director Martin Scorsese is knee-deep in his new film, an adaptation of Dennis Lehane’s thriller “Shutter Island” starring Leonard DiCaprio and Ben Kingsley, among others. And he’s stumped. Just a little.

“This new movie is set in 1954,” he says in comic exasperation. “No Rolling Stones!”

Fans of the filmmaker will understand his consternation. Long before directing the new Rolling Stones concert      documentary, “Shine a Light,” which opens April 4, Martin Scorsese was associated with their music.
