(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

Liked it a lot, although that probably has a lot to do with how excellent the music was that came from the resultant album...good insights from the doc and there are even more crazy stories, if they are to be believed, out on the internet from this time in France...

"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. ;-)
