The Synopsis for Stoned (2005) 720p

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...

The Reviews for Stoned (2005) 720p

Thoroughly enjoyed this filmReviewed bychrisdilworth636Vote: 9/10

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...

It has taken Stephen Woolley ten years to get this on to the screen,which allowed him plenty of time to do his research. He began byacquiring the film rights to the book, 'Who Killed Cock Robin?' andadded the rights to the deathbed revelations of Frank Thorogood; thenthe rights to the book by Anna Wohlin, one of Jones' two currentgirlfriends. He topped this by hiring a private eye to find Janet, theother girlfriend, to get her confirmation about the size of the Stonedlifestyle and some of the details of Jones' death. He was also able tofind a few original cameras including a vintage Bolex, to match theancient film clips slotted into parts of the story. Getting any filmmade has to be an obsession, and a major one at that, if it takes tenyears. What kept Woolley going was having been too young to be a hippy,the realisation that he had bought (as we all did) the PR stuntdepicting the leather-clad speed-freak drunk-rolling Beatles as nicefluffy chaps and the middle-class cricket fans fromKingston-upon-Thames as the evil and dangerous Stones, ' Jagger was atthe London School of Economics', and seeing Brian Jones as the onlyband member who was a genuine bad boy; 'the missing link' to thedecadent bohemian world. He links this to the dichotomy between Brian,the studiedly effete and spoiled brat, and Frank (Considine), a realbloke, an ex-soldier, with whom Woolley found himself identifying. Hesays he screened 'Performance' for the cast before shooting began, toget them into the zeitgeist, (We of the hippy generation realised thatwe could measure the effect of the encroaching years and our possiblematurity by noting how we moved from identifying with Turner to 'being'Chas), and in fact the shooting of the gun scene from that gets a quotehere. There are many little bits of contemporary reference intercut,and all so nearly subliminal that the audience could miss them if itwere not well-acquainted with them from the first time round and/ordidn't posses a certain amount of quick-fire intelligence. It'spleasurably flattering to be a member of an audience which is assumedto have these qualities. When you can say it in twenty frames, why milkit? The opening scenes establish Brian (Gregory) as the kingpin,getting a gig by phone while the rest of the band waits outside the redbox. Although not much later Andrew Loog Oldham sells himself to themas manager, most of the subsequent story dispenses with a strictlychronological narrative. The general situation moves on, but in bunchesof flash-back, present and flash-forward. Time's tooty-fruity. Whathappened after the Stones got Big was a gift to a film maker: Frank istaken on as a builder to tart up Brian's little mansion and, in spiteof the huge gaps between their respective cultures, becomes part of theStone's world. The parallels between this reality and the fictionalscenario of the contemporaneous Cammell-Roeg film, are fascinating andshould form the basis of a PHD for some 'sixties-fixated student sooneror later. For the camera-work, colour, montage, in purely visual terms'Stoned' is worth seeing, although it would have been well worthGregory putting on several extra pounds to cover his taut, well-tonedmusculature - Brian was quite chubby in real life - in fact all theband members could have added a little more puppy-fat. One obviousfailing in 'Stoned' is its lack of bloody marvellous soundtrack; butthere's hardly a film out now without a bloody marvellous soundtrack,and there are plenty of precedents; Orson Welles' 'Touch of Evil', forinstance. For lasting power a film has to stand as a film rather thanan extended marketing device. As a film, this cuts it. CLIFF HANLEY

"....Disappointingly Stoned...."Reviewed byjubilee77Vote: 3/10

Most people would have expected this film to be an insight in the life of Rolling Stones founder Brian Jones whom met his mysterious death in his own swimming pool and in more recent times lead to theories that he was murdered by builder Frank Thorogood but with hindsight, much of these theories that Brian was murdered were based on the opinions of girlfriends like Anna Wohlin so who cares? My own theories about this film is that it is really poor and is one of director Stephen Woolley's near-miss yet he had spent a decade trying to piece together this rubbish hence to such wasted effort and is also one to miss for it provides far too little fact about the life of Brian. Get real, folks! Nobody should take those theories about Brian Jones being killed by Frank Thorogood seriously as fact because little or maybe no real evidence exists and deathbed confessions from Thorogood were nothing more than incoherent ramblings. Brian Jones has been dead all those years. His bizarre lifestyle and unpredictable mood swings coupled with his asthma were the only known contributing factor to his short life. Save your money.
