  1. CarlosEsquives's rating of the film Sympathy for the Devil

    No es un documental sobre los Rolling Stones. Godard toma por excusa la grabación del clásico tema de los londinenses a fin de promover apuntes políticos bajo un discurso que el director venía modulando incluso desde "Dos o tres cosas...". Vemos así la entonación de posturas antisistema, en tanto, Sympathy for the devil sonando como leitmotiv (otra costura clásica del francés). Godard suma un bagaje de contracultura.

  3. Dominic Simard-Jean's rating of the film Sympathy for the Devil

    More Stones, less Godard please. I wish the Maysles had been behind this one too. I mean, Godard's political experiments parts are interesting, but very verbal and I couldn't get everything without subtitles, but they mostly don't have anything to do with the Stones footage. Messy but worth it for Keith Richards rocking the guitar.

  4. Beatriz Menezes Castro's rating of the film Sympathy for the Devil

    Godard and The Stones. And that is all.

  5. Marv1n's rating of the film Sympathy for the Devil

    On regarde le film avec d'autant plus d'intérêt (du moins les séquences studio, pas la tambouille expérimentale de Godard...) quand on sait que c'est justement pour l'occasion qu'ils ont écrit sympathy for the devil, qui a été rajouté à la dernière minute à Beggars Banquet

  6. El Biffo's rating of the film Sympathy for the Devil

    I know this film is far from perfect but it is The Rolling Stones filmed by Godard in 1968. I first saw it when I was a teenager, and I still enjoy watching the scenes with The Stones. Gimme Shelter by the Maysles is a much more powerful film, but this is cool, too.

  7. Neither/Nor's rating of the film Sympathy for the Devil

    JLG outlines a dialectic of sound/image, the contradictions of bedding them as one. The Stones, illustrative, a sum, passionate whole resulted from merged stripes of isolation. Culture is a pornography of slogans bound, resolved as spectacles of coherency. One plus one equals a relation, a new way of making--the Ophüls-like camera meandering tableau to tableau, but never completing a scene, a song, never catching up.

  8. Henrique Verkündigung's rating of the film Sympathy for the Devil

    i understand the satire in this film, althougt that, this movie is tremendously boring. I got confused because i know that godard admired bergman, but bergman didn't admire godard, but in this filme the 'eve scene' it's horrible, why would you ever make fun of bergman's movies? what an asshole

  9. Diego Carrera's rating of the film Sympathy for the Devil

    Sorry, but the devil certainly is not boring like this

  10. Jose's rating of the film Sympathy for the Devil

    Que cosas, por que a mi me gustaria ver una version sin los Rolling Stones, aunque podria escuchar Sympathy for the Devil y ver los a ellos por siempre.

  11. Max's rating of the film Sympathy for the Devil

  12. Joaopa's rating of the film Sympathy for the Devil

    stones + godard? we love it! rs

  13. yroc's rating of the film Sympathy for the Devil

    Easily one of Godard's most underrated films, Sympathy For The Devil is an imaginative and powerful satire on current politics and a call for revolution by the youth of the world. The footage of the Stones is some of the most intimate I have ever seen, especially considering we get to see the late, great Brian Jones. The vignettes are both comical and tragic, sometimes all at once. A perfect example of 60's cinema

  14. Brian O'blivion's rating of the film Sympathy for the Devil

    A look on Rolling Stones trying to arrange one of their typically unimaginative songs, plus some militant Black Panthers rambling on a junk yard. Yes, its as boring as it sounds. I have no sympathy for the Stones or charlatan Godard.

  15. Jye Sherwell's rating of the film Sympathy for the Devil

    I couldn't wait for it to end!

  16. rko281's rating of the film Sympathy for the Devil

    I wish there was a version available with all of Godard's nonsense cut out of it.

  17. Mariasol's rating of the film Sympathy for the Devil

    strictly for the stones footage.
