    I went for Gimme Shelter – as well as the music being great it’s got the added power of all the messed up stuff that was happening at the concert. Not to mention that it’s brilliantly put together. There are a bunch of those that I love too though – Last Waltz, Stop Making Sense and Woodstock are bonafide classics, plus I love Heima just because the music and the photography is so gorgeous.

    WHY? it’s the only one that’s funny (actually, i’ve not seen any of these so they could all be comedies – but i doubt it!)

    If i can’t have Spinal Tap then it’s got to be Spiceworld – hard hitting, topical, reactionary and truly inspiring to women the world over… Girl Power!

    I’ll get me coat.

    When did you try? Voting had closed because of the podcast delay last week, but I re-opened it this morning. Unless Laura’s voted already from your house/computer. You can’t vote more than once, it detects your IP address.

    Anvil’s such a fun documentary – both funny and sad at the same time. Saw this in Cannes and found myself rather emotional at the end – ahh bless!
    Having now seen the band live in Bristol I have to say they deserved the boost this film gave their almost faded music careers – not just because of their music but because they came across as being decent guys; funny too. I’d recommend this non-pretentious doc anyday.
