Sympathy for the Devil

Jean-Luc Godard, UK, 1968o

Sympathy For The Devil was made at the time when the Stones were at their creative peak and Jean-Luc Godard was taking a political-revolutionary direction with his films. With Godard's peculiar style, Sympathy For The Devil can be seen as two films in one. In the first film, the Stones work in a London studio on their latest song "Sympathy For The Devil". In the second film, which contains a series of abstract-fictional vignettes, Godard explores various themes such as race, pornography and the irony of interviewing celebrities.

Le film n'est pas une publicité pour une chanson ; c'est un essai - génial - sur la révolution, la liberté, la création, dont le propos interdit tout simplement de montrer la chanson terminée.

Isabelle Regnier

One Plus One n'aurait pu être qu'un documentaire musical de plus. Mais fidèle à son art du chaos, Godard contamine ce point de départ par des voix multiples charriant textes érotiques ou pensées idéologiques.
