This new high-def trailer for Martin Scorsese’s Shine a Light (Paramount, early 2008) is a much more layered and engaging piece than the now-removed Spanish-market trailer that I posted a week or so ago.

The difference with the new trailer is the obvious indication that the doc, which is about the Rolling Stones playing at Manhattan’s Beacon Theatre in the fall of ’06, is at least partly about the backstage political maneuverings before and during the filming, and that Scorsese is “in” the film as himself, “playing” the exacting and sometimes confused director.
