Documentary that, amazingly, really covers the '70s.
22 November 2002 | by susanswebSee all my reviews

If I hadn't seen it, I wouldn't have believed it. This documentary, in two hours, manages to include every major rock music movie released in the '70s. I can think of only one movie that was left out: "The Song Remains the Same" (no big loss in my opinion). One thing that impressed me after seeing this is that there was a lot of movie experimentation in the '70s. Something that probably wouldn't happen now (TV - yes, movies - no). The documentary kind of bogs down in the last half hour going on about disco; did we really need to have a segment on "Roller Boogie"? That minor criticism aside, for a time period where rock and roll really broke free of the earlier conventions, I would be hard pressed to find a better example of its impact in the movies.
