Gimme Shelter

Gimme Shelter
Buy this poster at
An incredible documentary about the disastrous Rolling Stones' concert at Altamont in 1969. The film's footage switches from time to time at the Stones in concert, to the Stones watching footage of the film in the editing room. It also shows the setting up of the concert, legally or otherwise. It even shows the man that was stabbed by a Hell's angel, on screen.

The film is a sad tragic look at a counterculture falling apart. You can see that the Stones, while watching the footage, are deeply disturbed by all the hatred that pours out of everybody, most especially the Hell's Angels. The film, in spite of all the insanity and tragedy that took place at the concert, portrayed the performance of the best material from that era. The soundtrack includes "Satisfaction", "Gimme Shelter" and "Sympathy for the Devil". This film is right up there with the film Woodstock as one of the best films to show life and culture in the sixties.

My Rating = Four Stars
