Critic Reviews for Stoned
Leo Gregory's performance as Jones fails to capture his rebel charisma, and the film, like its subject, winds up all wet, floating without direction, and lifeless.
A flat riff on Jones's short life. You'll get the highlights but no sense of what made him special -- or what really haunted him.
Played with such an utter lack of charisma by Leo Gregory, Jones comes across as a rocker so drug- and ego-addled he doesn't have enough sense to lie down.
With its low budget, unadventurous script and notable lack of any Stones recordings it has the look and feel of a TV movie.
Audience Reviews for Stoned
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.
Any Rolling Stones fan should see this.
I find the real story of Brian Jones to be much more interesting than this poorly done reenactment. There are ways to make movies about the '60s and there are ways not to make a movie about the '60s. This tries to be the classic Midnight Cowboy and fails. I found the artsy deluge of drugs, sex, and music spun together in phantasmagoric cinematography to be jarring, clichéd and annoying. The '60s style filming every now and then was irritating as well. The only good thing was the artful display of male and female nudity instead of the usual female only shots. The story was just all over the place. I feel that if someone else had taken on this story it would have had the potential to be great.
