This is an excellent documentary about the Stones, only goes up until 1981 but they became pretty boring from the eighties onward anyway. Narrated by the band themselves and consisting entirely of arrival footage its quite an eye-opener, especially the first few years of the band, they were certainly crazy times for them. No wonder Keith got on the drugs (along with everyone else), Mick Taylor left the band so he’d stay alive.
The director went onto make the Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck doco, he also made the excellent The Kid Stays in the Picture. This one has the most cuts I’ve ever seen in any film I think.
Tops stuff, especially the first 30 minutes.
