    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.
  2. Timeless, and as fine a depiction of human folly as you're likely to see at the movies.
  3. 100
    Remains a remarkable, almost timeless study.

    Captures that petulant omnisexuality that made many adults consider Jagger a threat to their daughters, sons and household pets alike.

    Disturbing, powerful essay on one aspect of the rock and drug culture at the end of the 1960s.
  6. The topic is well-suited to the Maysles brothers, who helped pioneer reality-centered "direct cinema" techniques.
  7. A strong example of the cinema verite style at work, yet few films of the school show up the crisis of its "noninvolvement" policy more tellingly.
