While there are many recurring motifs, themes and interests one can talk about when discussing the five-decade-plus long career of Martin Scorsese, when it comes to soundtracks, he's long shown an affinity for The Rolling Stones. Close pals with the rock 'n roll legends (he directed their 2008 concert doc "Shine A Light"), even since "Jumpin' Jack Flash" rumbled through "Mean Streets," he's kept an ear for opportunities to use the tunes of Mick 'n Keef. But one song in particular has been a favorite.

12-12-12
Earlier this week, Alicia Keys presented "12-12-12" at the Ziegfeld Theater to a New York audience, who reportedly "clapped, cheered and swayed their heads to the music." With a line-up including Keys, Paul McCartney, The Rolling Stones, Bruce Springsteen, Billy Joel, The Who, Kanye West, Billy Joel, Jon Bon Jovi, Chris Martin, Michael Stipe, Roger Waters, Eddie Vedder, Dave Grohl, and more, the film has one of the best soundtracks of the year. Opening in limited release today, the film captures the spirit of 12-12-12, the Hurricane Sandy relief concert—a quickly made, star-studded event for a great cause.

Of all the relationships that Judd Apatow has forged in his career, one of the most enduring personally and professionally has been with Ben Stiller. He was a writer on "The Ben Stiller Show," and as both their stars began to rise, they found space to work together time and again, with Stiller memorably popping up in everything from "Freaks & Geeks" to "Anchorman," while Apatow produced "The Cable Guy," which starred and was directed by the comic actor. But perhaps their most interesting time together was on something that never came to pass.

So yeah, The Rolling Stones creaked into their 50th year in 2012, and the old dudes are still cranking it out. They're lining up some gigs, and also dropped the absurdly named GRRR!, another greatest hits disc that also features two new songs for you completists out there. And of course, a new video has arrived to try and prove they've still got it.

There’s been the little-seen “Charlie Is My Darling” and “Cocksucker Blues,” Jean-Luc Godard’s “Sympathy for the Devil,” 1970’s Altamont-focused “Gimme Shelter,” Julien Temple’s “Stones at the Max” and Martin Scorsese’s “Shine a Light,” and that’s just scratching the surface when it comes to documentaries that have put “the world’s greatest rock and roll band,” The Rolling Stones, up on the big screen. For a band who are celebrating their 50th anniversary perhaps that’s to be expected, but it leaves "Crossfire Hurricane" (the official celebration of said anniversary) with the onerous task of having to tell a story that has been well documented many times before.

The Rolling Stones are celebrating their 50th anniversary this year, so naturally, goodies are coming out of the vaults. The latest is the legendary but never-before-released documentary "The Rolling Stones – Charlie Is My Darling – Ireland 1965." Produced by Stones’ manager/producer Andrew Loog Oldham, he enlisted director Peter Whitehead ("The Fall," "Tonite Let's All Make Love in London") to travel with the group and film before they broke big and just as “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction” began to rocket the group to the pinnacle of the U.S. and U.K. charts. The doc will be making its world premiere at the New York Film Festival this weekend (Andrew Loog Oldham himself will be in attendance).

While the making of The Rolling Stones' Exile On Main Street (which many consider to be one of their best, if not greatest album) has been chronicled numerous times both in print and film (most recently in Stephen Kijak's documentary "Stones In Exile"), the entire story of those rocky sessions and the background that led to the album has a feature film scope. Certainly, Richard Branson sees things that way as he's throwing his producing powers behind a narrative movie that will bring the tale of Exile On Main Street to the big screen.

As long as Mick Jagger can keep wiggling his hips, and Keith Richards stays alive, The Rolling Stones won't be retiring anytime soon. But even then, it's hard to believe the band's 50th anniversary is right around the corner. To help in what will probably be a blitzkrieg of marketing and merchandise, a career-spanning documentary is on the way.
