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.
