Self-indulgent to the power of 1,000 would do it. The rehearsal sequences are revealing and well-chosen; the political chapters are clunky, contrived and to modern eyes amateurish.
For an insight into the making of one of the Stones' greatest tracks, reach for this film. My advice is, fast forward each time a group of 'revolutionaries' hoves into view.
Not Godard at his best.
