Unless something comes up, I’m on a Rolling Stones sabbatical until Friday when I review “Me and Earl and the Dying Girl” and “The 100-year old Man Who Climbed Out the Window and Disappeared.”
Below that watch a trailer for the Maysles Brothers’ 1970 documentary “Gimme Shelter.”
It chronicles the ill-conceived Rolling Stones concert at the Altamont Speedway in which a man was stabbed to death by the Hells Angels.
The event marked the unofficial ending of the Woodstock era for the peace and love generation.
The Rolling Stones, particularly Mick Jagger, are no strangers to the big screen.
Here’s my story on the Rolling Stones film work.
