maysles brothers gimme shelter: rolling stones

gimme shelter is a great film, despite being a concert documentary. directed by the kings of doc the maysles brothers (even godard once called albert maysles “the best american cameraman“).  the most memorable scene for me, was when mick is on stage trying to sing and do his crazy dance, while a drunk and pissed-off hells angel guard is standing next to him staring, like he’s some repulsive git (the key part is that there was no security at this concert, just the hells angels “protecting” the band from the drugged out crowd)… more than one thing goes wrong and you can just imagine the stones and what was going through their heads. must see if you haven’t already. by dd
