Being a Canadian, the Band was huge for me. As well Ronnie Hawkins was a staple in Toronto. Robbie Robertson is an aboriginal from nearby Six Nations reserve in Brantford. So growing up with their music was special. The movie just exemplified it for me.

It is my favorite Scorsese movie (even though he reportedly acted like a fucking child during filming) and Eric Clapton's guitar strap breaking is the greatest thing he has filmed.
Haahhye haahhye!
