Some advice from Mr Scorsese himself and this his video clip which includes collaboration with Mick…
John Cassavetes once told me to stop wasting my time and get down to making the films I wanted to make, as opposed to the ones I could make.
It was an excellent piece of advice, which led to Mean Streets. Film what you want to film, what you need to film, not what you can film.
Mick Jagger joked that Shine a Light was the first of my movies in a long time that didn’t include “Gimme Shelter.” Believe me, it wasn’t for lack of trying.
