2003 region 1 DVD.
Considered one of the landmark new wave films of the late ’60s, directed by the celebrated Jean-Luc Godard, Sympathy for the Devil alternates between reflections on contemporary politics and social issues of the late 1960s as well as giving the audience an unprecedented view of The Rolling Stones creative process in the recording studio working on what would become one of the band’s defining tracks.
The film premiered at the 1968 London film festival highlighted by the physical assault of the producer on stage by Jean-Luc Godard. In 1970, when the film was released in the US, Roger Greenspun reviewed it for The New York Times remarking, “the meaning of Godard’s film depends not only upon a cause but also upon the camera’s eye; not only in sympathy, but in objectivity as well.”
