While I can understand the arguments against this film I personally thought it was really interesting. If you accept that this is not going to be a story about the Rolling Stones career and that it is only going to be a story about the final months of Brian Jones' life then you will not put yourself in a position to be disappointed.

Brian Jones was the founding member of the Stones and the one who turned the other guys on to the blues. He was also the acting manager of the band in the early days. However, he was also the first one to get into drugs and while the band spent the majority of its time either on the road touring or in the studio recording Brian spent an increasing amount of time in his stately mansion living like one of the landed gentry, albeit one of the stoned-out-of-his-gourd landed gentry. It was his drug problem that prohibited his touring the US with the rest of the band and it was his drug problem that prohibited his contribution to any album after 1967. The other guys occasionally came around to Brian's country estate to check in and see if he had cleaned up but they always found that he hadn't, so, finally, in 1969 Mick and Keith fired him from the band. Jones could hardly have been surprised. To make matters worse Jones girlfriend, Anita Pallenberg, left him for Keith c. 1968.

What the film tries to do is give us some idea of what made Brain Jones tick. He was a restless spirit who looked like an angel but who enjoyed experimenting with the dark side. It was the free-and-experimental-spirited model/actress Anita Pallenberg who turned him on to drugs and many of the films most fascinating sequences are drug-induced fantasy sequences that involve S$M (apparently the sex of choice for rock 'n rollers)and lots of dress up and role playing.

I have been a fan of Brian Jones' for many years and have always wanted to see a movie made about his life - and his was one of the interesting of any Sixties pop star. How many of the general public knows it was Brian Jones who founded and named the Rolling Stones? How many of the general public knows Brian Jones was the multitalented instrumentalist in the Stones and who played a key role in their creative sound during the Sixties by playing instruments like the Indian sitar (Paint It Black, Street Fighting Man), recorder (Ruby Tuesday), dulcimer (Lady Jane, I Am Waiting), mellotron (2000 Light Years From Home, We Love You), marimbas (Under My Thumb, Out Of Time), harmonica (Not Fade Away, I Want To Be Loved), and who was one of the first to play slide guitar (I Wanna Be Your Man, Little Red Rooster, I Can't Be Satisfied) in Great Britain - and one of the best slide guitarists as well. His slide guitar playing would have made any American Bluesman envious.

The movie does show flashbacks of his life, but unfortunately overlooks many important things like how hard he worked to get the Rolling Stones off the ground in their infancy years 1962-63, by writing countless letters to record companies trying to get their interest in signing the Stones, or letters to music papers encouraging journalists to come and see the Stones perform in Blues clubs around London, and to get bookings on British radio shows. It is also not mentioned that Brian Jones was one of the great fashion icons of the Swinging Sixties. Instead, this movie focuses on his self-indulgent lifestyle of sex and drugs and very little of what made him famous - the music.

Sex, drugs and rock'n'roll, and the downward spiral all three can inspire.

Brian Jones was the ultimate rock tragedy, dying young, rich and ruined by his own success and the loss of his lover. But the late Rolling Stones founder deserved a better biopic than "Stoned," which focuses on every part of Jones' life that is NOT interesting or insightful.

The movie opens with two flashbacks -- Jones being confronted about a girl he got pregnant, and an early Stones show. Then it flips ahead several years to when builder Frank Thorogood (Paddy Considine) is being hired by soon-to-be-ex Rolling Stone Brian Jones (Gregory), to do work on his new mansion and the grounds surrounding it. Soon he's fascinated by the mercurial Jones.

Jones himself is lost in memories of his glory days of drugs, sex, jetsetting and exotic music -- and especially his former lover Anita Pallenberg (Monet Mazur), who dumped him for his bandmate Keith (Ben Whishaw). He draws Thorogood into a dangerous game of hedonistic fun, until the degraded builder strikes back at him -- with tragic results.

In theory, Jones was the ideal subject for a biopic -- he lived a short, colourful life full of drugs, art and sex. Perfect subjects for a wild movie. Too bad this movie is actually about Frank Thorogood.

Unfortunately director Stephen Woolley doesn't seem to realize that nobody really cares about Thorogood, or why he murdered Jones. What people want is Jones -- tortured artist, forlorn child-man, girlfriend-beating sadist. Woolley provides brief glimpses ("You're fun to wind up") into Jones' psyche, but there's a lot more of Thorogood getting stoned, whining, and jumping on sleeping women.

How did Jones start the Stones? How did fame and drugs change him?
