Stoned

Critics Consensus

Poorly cast and sloppily assembled, Stoned turns one of rock 'n' roll's most darkly fascinating mysteries into a cinematic tragedy all its own.

    This film of the final days of one of the founding members of The Rolling Stones, Brian Jones was a fairly good attempt at capturing the essence of the icon. However it is a film that could have been much better and it had the potential of being so much more than what it turned out to be. I really liked the film, and I do think it is underrated and it doesn't deserve the flack it has received. Acting wise, there are some good performances and it is nonetheless a worthwhile film to watch even if it is not perfect. I have seen far worst biopics than this, and Stoned is at least well acted and tells a compelling story that should appeal to fans of the band. If you're a casual film viewer, you may not like this as much, but for Stones fans, this is a great viewing. I really enjoyed the way this film was made, but like I said before, it could have been done better. The potential was there to really make this a high caliber biopic about an icon, but in the end, it is viewed more as a curiosity than anything else. Stephen Woolley directs a confident cast that do their best with the material and they pull something quite good. With this one, don't listen to the critics, make up your own mind about it and go in with an open mind and you may enjoy it. The performances alone save this one from being a total dud, and the lead actor Leo Gregory is very impressive in the part of Brian Johnson. For what it is, it's a watchable biopic that overcomes its weaknesses by its cast, and that's the most important part.

    An interesting insight into the final days of Brian Jones, some good cinematography captures the tone of the era and in parts reminiscent of Blow Up and Performance in look. But looking right doesn't save this from feeling a little empty and whilst the actors pull off good performances, you care little for any of the characters as they have few redeeming qualities. I'm a big Paddy Considine fan, but there's little to grab on to here and he doesn't seem stretched. David Morrissey probably contributes the best performance overall. It's also blatantly obvious that the Stones wouldn't give them the rights to any of the music, hence a real absence of soundtrack which seems to compound the emptiness more.

    I didn't know too much about the death of Brian Jones before watching this film, just had an interest in the music by The Rolling Stones, so it was an interesting watch. It didn't really show Brian Jones in a good light, I'm not quite sure how accurate this was? The focus really is on Brian Jones and Frank (a character played by Paddy Considine), so fans of The Rolling Stones wanting to see this for music, may be slightly disappointed. VERDICT: Interesting story, definitely worth a watch
