  • Opens the window on a pivotal time in 1960s (and early 1970s) pop culture.

  • Lambert and Stamp are at least a bit fascinating, or at least somewhat interesting. But this film runs nearly two hours. They are at best an hour-and-a-half's worth of interesting.

  • Lambert & Stamp is at its best when it chronicles the high-wire act of the band's early years, as the pair guided the band through ever-greater levels of success.

  • An engrossing business story that approaches the band as a showbiz concern, recognizing the two managers as full creative partners and probing their relationships with the fractious musicians.

  • A rockumentary with a better story than most, and a better way of telling it.

  • You might call this a business story. But I call it a love story, and I think director Cooper might, too.
