Sympathy for the Devil

French director Jean-Luc Godard's documentation of late '60s western counter-culture intercuts footage of the Rolling Stones hard at work on their 'Beggar's Banquet' album with random, politically-charged vignettes examining the Black Panthers, the role of the media, a growing technocratic society, women's iiberation, the May revolt in France and the power of language. A surreal slice of life from 1968, this rockumentary is one of a kind. Also included is Godard's Director's Cut, 'One Plus One'.
