Music documentaries and films
 
Please recommend the best ones as we may be staying home for a while...

For me I love:

Quadrophenia and Tommy
The Wall
The Beatles films (might rewatch with the kids)
Various pink floyd documentaries
Supersonic
Bohemian Rhapsody & Rocketman were ok

Sure I've forgotten loads.
