30 hand picked films. A new one every day
Called “the greatest rock film ever made,” this landmark documentary follows the Rolling Stones on their notorious 1969 U.S. tour.
This is a doc about a band touring and responding to media involvement around an horrendous incident. Really raw. If you look at it as a pure concert film, you'll be disappointed.
Stark, shocking document by the Maysles, who were on hand to film the worst acid trip of the 1960's. This is the Rolling Stones concert you don't ever want to go to. Four people died.
Here it is, folks: the death of America, in ninety-one minutes.
I adore this film, but I only wish the Flying Burrito Brother's performance had been filmed better. You can hardly see the band, and footage of Gram Parsons is so hard to find anyway.
im never going to a rock concert again. EVER!
Great film. I also attended the Q&A. Maysles offered some considerable insights and came off as a warm, interesting individual. Looking forward to a more extensive Q&A tomorrow.
Good documentary, though it would have been cooler if the Rolling Stones were replaced by King Crimson.
