A decent low budget bio-film on the mystery of the now forgotten founder of the Rolling Stones.

It starts off excellent and then falls apart after the first half an hour.

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.

It was a nice piece of historical fiction, but it was hard to understand at times because it had a bad case of the quiet mumblies.

A good amount of nudity, but the rest is nothing new.

This movie really gives you some insight into the life of Brian Jones.

A horribly boring and uninteresting film about a person no one really cares about. What a waste of time.

Desde luego, si Brian Jones tuvo algo de genio y carisma (debio tenerlo, fue un Stone y un mito de los 60), esta pelicula fracasa a la hora de transmitirlo. Gran parte de culpa la tiene su protagonista, Leo Gregory, a quien la peluca al mas puro estilo del Principe de Beckelaer le hacen parecer mas a una version sixties de Toni Genil que al martir del club de los 27. Woolley se centra en el ultimo tramo de la existencia de Jones y en su turbia y decisiva relacion con el paleta Frank Thorogood, que desemboco (atencion, spoiler para los poco duchos en historia del rock) en una muerte en extrañas circunstancias. De las insuficientes migajas del pasado ofrecidas en forma de flashbacks, se infiere que nuestro principe era una oveja descarriada, principalmente, por las malas influencias de la volcanica Anita Pallenberg (estimulante Monet Mazur). No fue el unico seducido por sus encantos: Keith Richards (su futuro marido) y (supuestamente) Mick Jagger tambien, aunque ellos sobrevivieron. Aparentemente.

Poor performances and cliched script. There isn't a single likeable character and at the end you're left wondering why you should care about any of them.

Any Rolling Stones fan should see this.

wasn't familiar with all the brian jones story so it was interesting to read about the creation and destruction of a rock star. there is some heavy confusion in the making of this movie, maybe it wanted to portrait the feeling of the stoned brain jones... but it seem more of a mass.

It seems that every rock band from the 1960s and 1970s had that one member that self-destructed. The Doors had Jim Morrison. Led Zeppelin had John Bonham. The Who had Keith Moon and the Rolling Stones had Brian Jones. Jones was one of the founding members of the Stones but he was kicked out after his substance abuse and legal problems became a problem. Jones is portrayed as a prima donna, demanding that a worker Frank Thorogood, be his gopher, cooking his meals in addition to making a fence, which he tells the worker to tear down and move, which they do, then telling them to move it back to the original spot. The problem with this movie is that it's all been seen and done before a lot better. The acting is subpar and it's somewhat laughable seeing unknowns playing young versions of Mick Jagger and Keith Richards as almost parodies. This movie takes a stance on Jones' mysterious death by saying that Thorogood killed Jones, even though Thorogood was never arrested. What's worse about the movie is that it is more about Thorogood than about Jones.

An interesting look at the decadent lifestyle of The Rolling Stones founder Brian Jones and his rise to stardom and his fall from grace after being fired from the band he started only to be found dead several weeks later. Leo Gregory does a pretty decent portrayal of Jones.

Thought this was ok. Paddy Considine plays a major part so that makes it a pass in my book.
