SYMPATHY FOR THE DEVIL (1968)

50th Anniversary

Given access to film the Rolling Stones during the recording sessions for the album "Beggar's Banquet," the newly politicized Jean-Luc Godard alternates long takes of the band jamming, rehearsing and recording "Sympathy for the Devil" with staged tableaux demonstrating America's rising Black Power movement. Provocative in its juxtapositions, the film is endlessly open to interpretation, and a unique time capsule of both the Stones and Godard, in his incipient radicalism and turning away from narrative cinema. DIR/SCR Jean-Luc Godard; PROD Michael Pearson, Iain Quarrier. UK, 1968, color, 100 min. NOT RATED
