—————————————————————

The Rolling Stones, always conscious of their own mythology, have embraced the rockumentary more than any other band. The best of the bunch is the Maysles brothers’ account of the last weeks of their 1969 US tour, ending in the disastrous Altamont free concert, at which Meredith Hunter was murdered by the Hells Angels who had been hired to provide security. The film starts as fun, but the Altamont killing – the incident is captured here – is widely seen as marking the death of 60s. Here, too, is Mick Jagger for once looking shocked at what he’s been involved in.
