Sympathy for the Devil (originally titled One Plus One by the film director and distributed under that title in Europe) is a 1968 film shot mostly in color by director Jean-Luc Godard, centered around the recording of the classic Rolling Stones song.
Features the fully restored version of ‘Sympathy for the Devil’ plus The Director's Edit ‘One + One’ and ‘Voices’, a documentary on Godard filmed during the making of this movie.
‘Sympathy For The Devil’ was filmed in 1968 when the Rolling Stones were at the peak of their creative powers, by Jean-Luc Godard, legendary French New Wave Director. For many the main attraction of ‘Sympathy For The Devil’ is sseing the band take a loose outline of a song and turn it into a stirring, fully realised, creation.
Beginning as a ballad, the track gradually acquires a pulsating groove, which gets Jagger into a rousing vocal display of soulful emotion, which Godard is lucky enough to capture on film.
Sympathy for the Devil Review
“Ever the master of the avant-garde wind-up, Jean-Luc Godard once proclaimed, “Art is a gun,” and here he’s firing all over the place. Rich in the spirit of ’68, this movie cooks a strange brew: Rolling Stones rock-doc and bonkers cine-Marxist polemic. The latter is typical Godard genius-bollocks, outraged and outrageous in its counter-cultural howling. The former is simply genius, covering the composition, demo and recording of (have you guessed yet?) Sympathy For The Devil. Stones fan or not, it’s flat-out mesmeric, the anatomy of a classic song shot with passion, intimacy and prowling panache…” 4/5 Empire
