Lot 63, Grave C (2006)

*** 1/2 (out of 4)

Very good documentary from Sam Green takes a look at Meredith Hunter, the man who was stabbed to death by the Hells Angels at the 1969 Altamont concert featuring The Rolling Stones. If you know anything about music history then Hunter's name is going to ring a bell plus the events of the concert were put into the film GIMME SHELTER, which is considered by many to be the greatest rock and roll documentary ever made. This 10 minute film is a very good one because it takes us to the grave of Meredith and we also get to see some of the original newspaper headlines of his death. If you're a fan of GIMME SHELTER then you'll certainly want to watch this short as it makes for a good follow-up on the man that was killed. I like how Green shot his portion of the film in B&W and the only color footage comes from the clips used of GIMME SHELTER. While this documentary really doesn't tell you any new details on the event or the man killed, it's at least a nice little homage.
