Sorry to say I haven't seen much of his stuff, though I feel like I should have. Monterey Pop unfortunately probably suffers by circumstance. It would probably be the definitive '60s concert film if Woodstock hadn't come along a few years later. I remember The War Room getting a lot of attention upon its release, maybe the most in Pennebacker's career. Can't remember if it got an Osca nomination and/or win for Best Documentary, but it was almost certainly the highest-grossing doc in its year of release.

The best Bob Dylan documentary, he is just on the cusp of changing over to electric rock from acoustic folk. One memorable scene has a British female fan telling him how much she loves "The Times They Are A-Changin' but doesn't like "Subterranean Homesick Blues".  He says "Oh you're that kind, I understand right now"
