I don't know if there's thread like this already, but I can't find it, so -

What are your favorite rock and roll movies or documentaries?
Mine : Woodstock : 3 Days of Peace and Music, Taking Woodstock, Almost Famous, Boat That Rocked, The Wall, It Might Get Loud, Control, Stoned, Pick Of Destiny ...

Any recommendation according to my favorites?
:D

I highly recommend The Monterey Pop Festival DVD. A 3 day festival of rock and pop music featuring a who's who of bands and singers all in full color. The festival was held in June of 1967 in Monterey, California, right at the beginning of the summer of love on the west coast. It's become a historical document of a film, on par with the ever fascinating and superb "Jazz On A Summer Day", filmed at the 1958 Newport Jazz Festival.

One Movie I love is 'Get Crazy' starring Daniel Stern, Malcolm McDowell, Ed Begley Jr., Lou Reed, & a host of others. It came out in the mid 80's & is worth tracking down even if it is on VHS (It still hasn't been released on DVD)

"The Decline Of Western Civiization Pt. II" rockumentary does a very good job summerizing the world of 80's Metal from established stars like Ozzy, Lemmy and Alice Cooper to all the up and coming bands trying to leave their mark in the clubs of the Sunset Strip.

Some of my favorites are:

Festival Express (just watched this Friday night, see my mini-review in the other music dvd thread)
The End of the Century - the story of the Ramones
Gimme Shelter
Gram Parsons - Fallen Angel
Standing in the Shadows of Motown
Don't Look Back - Bob Dylan
Beatles Anthology
The History of Rock 'n' Roll (1995 mini series, originally aired on PBS)

and all the 'Classic Album' dvds I've seen are excellent. I've got the ones on Who's Next (Who), Disraeli Gears (Cream), Electric Ladyland (Hendrix), & Ace of Spades (Motorhead).

There was a Beatles documentary called The Complete Beatles. It's probably close to 25 years old. It was on video at the tiime, don't know if it has come to DVD, but it was really good, and is recomended viewing if you like the Beatles.
