Movie Info

In 1972, the Rolling Stones, facing tax and management problems, leave the U.S. and rent a villa on the coast of France. They hole up in the house for months recording "Exile on Main Street," their most reviled, then revered album ever. Along with archival footage, interviews with Keith Richards and Mick Jagger look back on the steady supply of drugs and alcohol that fueled their sessions, while musicians like Jack White and Liz Phair recall their own memories of the hugely influential album.

  • (T)he portrait that Kijak creates is incredibly vivid thanks to his access to rare home movies footage, a wealth of stills... and audio outtakes from the sessions.

Audience Reviews for Rolling Stones: Stones in Exile

  • Jun 20, 2011
    "I just wanna drink from your loving cup." There was no way I wasn't going to like this at least a little bit. The Rolling Stones are my 2nd favorite band of all-time behind Hendrix. Stones in Exile is an interesting look at the making of Exile on Main St. With that said it isn't an amazing documentary. It's way to short and could have went a lot more in depth. If you are a Stones fan though, you won't regret giving this a watch. It is a pretty insightful look at how the Stones went about the making of their albums and does look a little bit into the excess in their lives.

    If you love Rock 'n Roll docs and you love the Stones, this film is a no-brainer. Watch, rinse, repeat. FYI - this film is available through Netflix on demand. Which means, and not that I would recommend it, watching it on the 2nd screen on your computer at work. ;-)

    Pretty decent documentary about the making of The Stones 1972 scuzzy masterpiece <i>Exile on Main St</i>. Even though the story is told in the band's own words, I somehow expected this film to be more revealing than it turned out to be. It begins promisingly enough with Charlie Watts and Mick Jagger visiting their old recording haunt, Olympic Studios in London, the comfortable workplace they were forced to leave behind when the British taxman pushed them out of the country. Once we move to the French Riviera, however, memories become, perhaps not unsurprisingly in some cases, rather hazy and selective. Disappointingly, we never get inside the gates of Villa Nellcôte, the 19th century mansion rented by Keith Richards in which most of the album was recorded. Frustratingly, although they contribute to film - Bill Wyman's insights are probably the most candid - we only get to see Wyman, Richards, Mick Taylor, and Anita Pallenberg in irritating, artsy glimpses. No mention is made of Gram Parsons, Richards' house guest at Villa Nellcôte until Pallenberg booted him out, although he can clearly be seen in a couple of archive photographs.
