Cocksucker Blues, the 1972 Robert Frank Rolling Stones film you weren't supposed to see...
Cocksucker Blues is undeniably the most disreputable yet arguably the most authentic rock 'n' roll movie ever made, a scabrous tour document that shows the Stones and their entourage shooting up, snorting and sexing their way across America during the '72 Exile on Main Street tour.
Never officially released, heavily bootlegged for decades and still a jolt to the system after all these years, Cocksucker Blues has been tied up in litigation, negotiation and general voodoo since the moment of its birth.
On Friday, January 17, 2014 it gets what the program notes call "a pricelessly rare" Toronto public screening at TIFF Bell Lightbox, part of a Frank retrospective running through January 20, 2014 that will include his acclaimed 1959 Beat Generation short, Pull My Daisy. source
