1968 **** 79 mins.
This short film covers a three day concert event from 1967. It plays like a typical concert video, simply showcasing a variety of performances. The credit sequences are cool, and the performances are all classic. The short running time helps the film a lot. For a true definitive vision of the sixties, watch Woodstock. If you don't have three to four hours, to spare, though, then Monterey Pop will suffice until you do. Hendrix is the best part of this film, especailly when he sets his guitar on fire. Look for Monkee Micky Dolenz in the ending crowd scene.
