The central figures in this documentary/performance are The Rolling Stones: Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Ron Wood et. al. Filmed at various Stones concerts in Turin, Berlin and London, the film manages to capture the euphoria of a live event due to the IMAX system format: a huge 70mm image projected on 50 X 70-foot screen, accompanied by 6-track "surround sound." Thus, by its very nature, At the Max cannot be properly experiences within the dimensions of the TV screen, nor was it intended to.
