Even though I grew up in the 60's I never got involved in drugs and could never understand those that did. Likewise, I've never understood the Rolling Stones fascination. But after watching this I do have a lot more respect for Mick Jagger. He sincerely was horrified at what happened here and did his best to squelch the violence. But this was a tragedy waiting to happen right from the planning stage. What an amazing job of documenting it.
the end of the hippie era
One of the best documentaries ever made!
