Cocksucker Blues

(Robert Frank, 1972)

Perhaps the most infamous rock doc every created, Cocksucker Blues provides a “fly on the wall” look at the Rolling Stones’ first trip back to the United States after their disastrous Altamont concert in 1969. What Frank captured was a tour at its most hedonistic—with rampant drug use, backstage parties, and misbehaving roadies and groupies—which led to the film never having an official release and cementing its cult status. (93 mins., digital video)
