The Rolling Stones as an institution have turned fifty years old this year, and director Brett Morgen is taking a closer look at the band in his new documentary Crossfire Hurricane. Airing on HBO on Thursday, Nov. 15, the film chronicles the band's meteoric rise and takes a look at how the band keeps ticking. Morgen acquired never-before-seen footage of the Stones' early U.S. tours and rare interviews with band members. The trailer below shows the band in a daze after that first tour and their decision to don the "black hat" in comparison to the Beatles' squeaky-clean image. Watch it below.
In addition, another documentary--Peter Whitehead's long-lost 1965 film Charlie Is My Darling--is getting a commercial release. You can see that film on DirecTV's Audience Channel on Saturday, Nov. 10 at 9PM ET/PT. [Indiewire]
