Often called the greatest rock film ever made, “Gimme Shelter” offers a close look into The Rolling Stones’ 1969 US Tour. As the tour wound down and many complained about the high prices of the shows, the band concluded with a free concert at Altamont Speedway, which quickly turned to tragedy. The documentary has been legendary ever since its 1970 release. As IndieWire once said, “A cult classic, ‘Gimme Shelter’ is more than a concert film. It’s a multi-layered palimpsest upon which social, artistic, historical and cultural ideas are scribed.”
