The Mayles Brothers changed the face of documentary filmmaking with their observational style (they called it “direct cinema”), and this film about the Rolling Stones’ disastrous concert in Altamount, California – four people died, one by murder – observes what may be the exact moment when the 1960s ended. It’s also been called the greatest rock concert film ever.
