1970. USA. Directed by Michael Wadleigh. With a list of collaborators including Thelma Schoonmaker and Martin Scorsese, the pedigree of this epic concert film/cutural document is nearly as legendary as the line-up of musical talent it captured—including Joan Baez, The Who, Arlo Guthrie, and Jimi Hendrix. Plagued by production difficulties and the last-minute exit of the original directors, Albert and David Maysles, this now-classic rock-doc almost didn’t happen. 15-minute intermission. 228 min.
