In 2012, a resurrection no one thought possible took place when legendary band, The Stone Roses reformed after 16 years. With unprecedented access to previously unseen archive footage, MADE OF STONE is a revealing journey through the life of one of the most revered and influential bands in British music history. Acclaimed film-maker Shane Meadows brings his unique directorial style, humour and emotional depth to the film, capturing the band at work and in their everyday lives as they rehearsed for their much-anticipated reunion, which culminated in three triumphant homecoming gigs at Manchester's Heaton Park in front of 220,000 adoring fans.

All Critics (26) | Top Critics (1)

By the time the long, throbbing concert finale begins, there is no doubt that Mr. Brown's intensity has not faded over the years and that the Stone Roses' breakup was a serious loss.

"Made of Stone" is packed wall-to-wall with performance footage past and present. The reunited band proves to be quite muscular, and the tunes have lost none of their luster.

Some may find Meadow's lack of journalistic rigour frustrating, but the filmmaker has ultimately created something different - a heartfelt tribute to one of Britain's most important bands, as seen through the eyes of its fans.

Made of Stone is a faithful, fan's-eye account of the band's return that also serves as a good primer in their music and their massive influence for the uninitiated.

What Meadows has produced in effect is the cinematic version of those glossy brochures that go on sale at high-end concert venues.

This is very much a fan's-eye view of the Roses. But Meadows' lack of critical distance from his subject pays off in spades by allowing him to capture the passion the Roses inspire in their fans.
