Gimme Shelter

If you’ve never heard about the Altamont incident before, this this isn’t the documentary to explain it to you. But if you have, this will definitely illustrate it for you a bit. With no narration, Gimme Shelter is a collection of interviews and footage from the famous show. If this doc had been made in present day, it might have been titles ‘Hippies Gone Wild’. In a move that the doc fails to explain, and I’ve never quite heard any good reason why this happened, the Hell’s Angels as security just seems like a really poor idea. No matter what. However, I’m torn by the stigma that this concert created- do free concerts always mean that there’s extra riff raff that wouldn’t be there otherwise? I don’t know–I’ve been to some high dollar shows where there’s been a pretty scuzzy audience.
