Storyline

Fact-based story about the drug-addled and sordid life of The Rolling Stones founder Brian Jones. Unfortunately the story moves so quickly into the sensationalized decadence and drug-induced state of Jones, that the unknowing viewer has to wonder why anyone would care. There are only a few framing sequences with members of The Stones, particularly Keith Richards, that show they had a great respect for him and tried to bring him back into the band as he drifted away. Mixed into the destruction of Jones is a common builder, Frank Thorogood, who is given the unenviable task of trying to please Jones by rebuilding his estate and to watch him per Jones' manager's instructions. Thorogood's life is so far removed from all of the sex and drugs that he sees, that he envies and desires the tawdry life as well, but never quite fits in. Unfortunately, at least according to this film and according to a supposed death bed confessional of Thorogood in 1993, it led to Thorogood's murder of Jones in a...

Quotes

Brian Jones: Thanks for making a marytr of me. If it wasn't for you I'd still be alive and, no one would care.
Tom Keylock: You know that isn't true. It was you screwing with Frank's head what did it, because you had nothing better to do. But you did know her...
Brian Jones: Anita.
Tom Keylock: You just had to go and screw it up, didn't ya? Your problem is, you were never happy - even Frank was happy.
Brian Jones: You're wrong you know Tom. I was happy, somewhere in the middle there. The thing with happiness was... It was boring.

Thoroughly enjoyed this film
19 January 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Anyway another topic about films...saw 'Stoned' last night. A film about the life and death of the Rolling Stones member Brian Jones...The death of whom was quite a shocking event at the time. I thoroughly enjoyed it..

Directed by Stephen Woolley, with Leo Gregory as Jones and Paddy Considine as the man who lived closely with him, Frank Thorogood..

It was a very good surprise..

I had no expectations and was hooked from the start..The actors playing the young Stones were very good at creating the look, feel and attitude of the band and the design of the film, especially the make up of the women cast members, was just evocative of the time in the 60's..The music was excellent and the editing to the music was superb..Hooked me in from the word go...
