Cocksucker Blues (1972)

Director: Robert Frank

Keywords: Music Documentary, Rock and Roll

Documentary of the 1972 Rolling Stones Exile on Main Street tour, financed by the band itself. Gritty and with the feeling of a home film, there is sex and drug use shown but by groupies, not the band itself. The title of the film refers to a song completed to fulfill a contractual obligation, performed once during the documentary. A court injunction against director Robert Frank prevents Cocksucker Blues from being shown except in very limited circumstances. Bootleg VHS copies can be found, and it has surfaced more than once on the Internet. Of the film Mick Jagger is said to have remarked, "It's a fucking good film, Robert, but if it shows in America we'll never be allowed in the country again."
