"Lambert & Stamp" (2014 release; 117 min.) is a documentary about Kit Lambert and Chris Stamp, 2 Brits best known for managing the Who for about a decade (mid-60s to mid-70s). As the documentary opens and after a few words from Pete Townsend, we are introduced to Chris Stamp, who starts telling stories of how it all began, him and Lambert in the early 60s trying to make the jump from assistant director to director. One day, they decide to shoot a movie, cinema verite-style, about an unknown band that they would manage. After looking for months for the right band, Lambert comes across a packed club full of Mods, dancing to an unknown band call the High Numbers. To tell you more would spoil your viewing experience, you'll just have to see for yourself how it all plays out.

There are several factors why this is such an entertaining documentary: for one, it's a great story, I mean you can't make this stuff up! Then we are blessed to have the interviews with Chris Stamp, who turns out to be a master story teller (other interviewees include Pete Townsend, Roger and Heather Daltrey, and many others). Then we have the incredible luck that these guys were trying to shoot a movie, and hence we have all this incredible footage from the earliest days of the High Numbers/the Who (1964-65), and that alone is worth the price of admission for this documentary. There is tons of other worthwhile archive footage, such as the 1967 French TV footage, where we see Lambert give an interview in perfect French. We reach the "Tommy"-era about 75 min. into the movie, and I was afraid that things were going to become less interesting after that, but as it turns out, that's where the fireworks are about to start...

This is a remarkably intimate and brilliant rock & roll film that happens to be about our beloved friend Chris Stamp and his partnership with Kit Lambert - they discovered and managed The Who. There are honest and emotional recollections of late -’60s with fantastic archival footage of the Mod culture - it all makes you feel as if you were there. The movie is about creativity, vision, evolution and heart. The direction and editing are an achievement! It is truly a must-see film!

An emotionally authentic journey of creative risk taking and visionary pathways of two
Men who brought us THE WHO, Jimi Hendrix, Arthur Brown, Thunderclap Newman, and more with the first UK independent label TRACK RECORDS. A gem ! Full participation of The Who and rare archival footage!

If you ever wanted to know about the very early years of The Who, then this is the one movie to watch. We love the B&W film clips of this era in London. The one thrilling moment, for me, is to see both Jimi Hendrix, Chas Chandler and Lambert and Stamp chatting and then how they invented, overnight, Track Records. There's the added bonus of the director interview, where he reveals that this project took TEN(10) years. A lot of information that I had never known about The Who and the two managers that were in a 'once in a lifetime' project. Highly Recommended~!

After watching this once so far,I've concluded that there was alot of stuff about how the Who started I didn't know. It was enjoyable,and does keep your interest with the interesting tidbits about how they were discovered,what Lambert and Stamps original plan was,and soforth.I would recommended this for a Who fan,in general,but it may not be a great buy for the casual fan,but I did enjoy watching it

A must see for Who fans. Incredible snatches of performance footage. Emphasis is on the managers, how they got involved, how their working with the band developed, their impact on the band's direction, and their fading away after Townshend's music and Daltry's stardom succeeded beyond anyone's expectations. Lambert and Stamp were exceptional characters in their own right and whether The Who would have gained global recognition without them is up to the viewer to decide. Great documentary.

If you are a casual fan who loves "Teenage Wasteland" (sic), move on.
If you are looking for a "puff piece", move on.
If you are looking for a treasure trove of unseen archival footage, move on.
If you have read books on The Who, and want to better understand the relationship(s) between Lambert, Stamp, and The Who, then you will definitely want to watch. The movie goes into good detail via interviews with Stamp, Townshend, and Daltrey. 40 years later, you can still see the sense of betrayal and sadness in Pete's face when he describes the beginning of the breakup between Lambert/Stamp and The Who. I have been a Whophile since 1989, and this movie lent insight into the most inspirational management The Who ever had. I am glad I bought it.
However, this is not quite a biography of Lambert or Stamp. I believe this movie could have been a little better if it at least addressed the deaths of Lambert and Stamp.

Was pretty fun and interesting. This film was good if you are a Who fan, plus it gives a really good time capsule of the early days of rock. Was very interesting. Would have given it five stars .... except that it ended a little flat and left our some actual Who history and glossed a few things over. The main point of the film honestly isn't the Who, but is Lambert & Stamp and their promotion of the Who.
