"There is no better dinner date than Chris Stamp," says James D. Cooper, whose debut documentary Lambert & Stamp premiered earlier this week at the Sundance Film Festival. The film feels like a night hanging out with the legendary Who manager – a juicy meal complete with gossip, anecdotes and insider intel.

Shot primarily in stark black and white, the film – which resembles mod London – unpacks the idiosyncratic connection between an unlikely duo: the posh Lambert, son of a classical composer, and the blue-collar Stamp, »
Named for the cinephilic pair of Swinging Londoners who figured that managing the Who would be a good way to get a movie made, “Lambert & Stamp” belatedly realizes their 50-year-old dream. Impeccably directed by first-time documentarian James D. Cooper, the pic, chock-full of tooth-rattling ’60s Who tunes, also serves as a definitive screen bio of the band and its rock-operatic rise, and as an incisive portrait of the two men, Chris Stamp and the late Kit Lambert, who were crucial to making that happen. At least in ancillary, the film’s wallop should rival that from Keith Moon’s kick drum.
Not just for the “maximum R&B” group’s legion of fans, “Lambert & Stamp” stands to appeal to anyone interested in ’60s British pop culture, proto-indie entrepreneurship and/or the interpersonal dynamics involved in any collaborative art.
Lambert, son of a classical musician, died in 1981 and is seen and heard here only in snippets. »
