Gimme Shelter - REVIEW

Film of the Day #163/ 300

Gimme Shelter is a disturbing time capsule that showcases the Rolling Stones notorious Altamont Speedway concert in 1969. At times you forget that at its core this is a live concert film, because, Gimme Shelter is a haunting movie that reports and observes counterculture experience in its decline. This movie examines the events violence that all but destroyed and marked the end of the peace and love euphoria of the 1960's.
