i've heard "Cocksucker Blues" will never b shown while the stones are together, even though i had seen it on the marquee at the Wiltern theater right after i moved down the street in 87, and on the menu at various revival houses for 1 time late night showings over the years.
i picked up a bootleg copy in the mid 80's. i guess the stones owed some record dictators 1 more song to fulfill a contract,in the early-mid 70's and the song is what they handed in. then someone followed them around with what looks like a super8 r maby16mm camera on a tour bout that time. they captured some of the most candid best back, side, and front stage footage ive ever seen. including a not so private jet plane flight, between shows i assume, of a groupie being handled by a roadie while mick an keith look on and keep the beat with maracas and tambourine. mostly black and white,with some color segments. a must see for any one 18 and up with even a passing interest in bloated 70 RnR. and if your a stones fan, well ya probably already have seen it. if not get on it.
You forgot Eddie & The Cruisers II... Thank God It's Friday.
I couldn't disagree more; Tom Hardy's performance as Fitzgerald was spectacular and he's fully deserving of the nomination. One of the best actors in the business.
Thanks for writing, BondFan. As noted in both the article and an above comment, that list is in chronological order; otherwise, Tracy would have been #1. And M was admittedly a close miss.
How is M's death in Skyfall not listed. M, Vespar and Tracy should be 1-3.
Love the Beatles..
Anonymous and Anon: HEAD and WALK THE LINE are cited in the sidebar story, The Best Also-Rans, at http://clclt.com/charlotte/greatest-rock-f…. As for the others, well...

I haven't decided on my top films this year but definitely included would be "Locke". I also liked "Nightcrawler", "Magic in the Moonlight" and "Guardians of the Galaxy". Oh yeah and “Fury” with Brad Pitt.
Looking forward to Gandolfini's final film The Drop. If you were a fan of Gandolfini, you might like SopranosAutopsy.com

Very timely, Mr. Brunson! I still have well-worn VHS tapes of most of those if anyone wants dubs. And I was just telling someone how, if you glance at the Loafing URL www.clclt.com and don't look too closely, you'd swear it reads CLIT.COM... just sayin'...

I think, the film about Johnny Cash was real good. The music was great!
No Monkees "HEAD?"
