    If you've never seen Mick Jagger doing his thing in his prime, you're missing out. The scene during which the band first hears the "Wild Horses" demo is beautiful and unparalleled. What Keith Richards is on, I have no idea, but that's cool.

    Excellent, even if just for the live performances and as one reviewer mention the moments such as the Stones listening to Wild Horse for the first time in the studio. The Stones had some terrific live moments in the late 60's and early 70's. This is a must have for any Stones fan. The only non-bootleg material from this era and 1000 times better than the Best Buy only 4 Flicks Excellent, even if just for the live performances and as one reviewer mention the moments such as the Stones listening to Wild Horse for the first time in the studio.

The only non-bootleg material from this era and 1000 times better than the Best Buy only 4 Flicks crap. Far better than any of the other live Stones DVDs. Oh yeah, there's the rest of the documentary which has also fascinated me since the late 70's when I first became a Stones fan. Great footage, documentary. In that regard it's on of the best rock documentaries ever, right up there with Dylan's Don't Look Back. Expand

    Full of significance for those who look for it, but it's just a back-stage pass to a concert policed by the gestapo.

    Like the best of cinema verite works, this fuzzball of a movie offers everything--comedy, drama, tragedy. It's a documentary of the crazy speedball combo of idealism, greed, naivete, cunning, insanity, and art that often came together in the 60s to produce such events as this. Often mentioned as a cautionary counterpoint to utopian claims for Woodstock, it's simply fascinating Like the best of cinema verite works, this fuzzball of a movie offers everything--comedy, drama, tragedy. It's a documentary of the crazy speedball combo of idealism, greed, naivete, cunning, insanity, and art that often came together in the 60s to produce such events as this. Often mentioned as a cautionary counterpoint to utopian claims for Woodstock, it's simply fascinating on its own terms. The dark humor mostly arises from the collision between Hell's Angels' beer drenched boorishness and the dazed acidrocked delirium of the fans--"don't lean on my bike, man!!" "huh??". If no one had died, this would have been the funniest comedy, intentional or otherwise, ever. Collapse

    Movies don't get any more real than this.
  2. Signals the real end of the party, charting a denouement that arcs from blissful ignorance to violence and its ever-present threat to a final retreat.

    The impact of this stunning film - and the lessons to be learned from it - are as remarkable as when it was first released 30 years ago.
