The Doors
The Filth and The Fury (documentary about Sex Pistols & punk movement)

Here's something for you to brainstorm about:

I have a professor putting together a syllabus for a "History of Rock
'n
Roll" class. We have documentaries covered, but she also wants to make
use
of feature films. They can about specific musicians, about the music
industry, or simply where rock music is an important part of the movie.

She said she's especially having problems coming up with ideas for
films
(documentary or feature) dealing with the 90s. Grunge, alternative,
etc.
(But just checked out the two series by PBS and Time Warner for
previewing...)

Anyway, here are the film titles I've come up with so far:
The Rose
La Bamba
Buddy Holly Story
That thing you do
Yellow Submarine
Elvis movies
Almost famous
Spinal Tap
Selena
Grease
Saturday Night Fever
Back to the Future (dance scene "Johnny be good")
Footloose
Pink Floyd's The Wall

Thanks in advance,
Barb
