Sympathy for the Devil

You will have to be one hell of a serious, and I do mean ONE HELL OF A Rolling Stones fan to sit through this disjointed mess of a film and I use the term film loosely. Whatever genius Jean-Luc Godard possessed was certainly on vacation when he put together this assortment of nonsensical politcal imagery all somewhat tied in with the Stones recording their famous song from which the title is taken. The footage of them in the studio alone is useful in a historical perspective but even this will bore the average person and the other bits will drive you to utter distraction. Worth a peek once as long as the fast forward button is close at hand.
