Editorial Reviews

Crossfire Hurricane, directed by Brett Morgen, is released as part of the ongoing 50th anniversary celebrations of The Rolling Stones. This superb new film tells the story of the Stones' unparalleled journey from blues obsessed teenagers in the early sixties to their undisputed status as rock royalty. All of The Rolling Stones have been newly interviewed and their words form the narrative arc that links together archive footage of performances, news coverage and interviews, much of it previously unseen. Taking its title from a lyric in Jumpin' Jack Flash, Crossfire Hurricane gives the viewer an intimate insight into exactly what it's like to be part of The Rolling Stones as they overcome denunciation, drugs, dissensions and death to become the definitive survivors. Over a year in the making and produced with the full co-operation and involvement of The Rolling Stones, Crossfire Hurricane is and will remain the definitive story of the world's greatest rock 'n' roll band.

5.0 out of 5 stars For the Stones Collector April 3, 2013
Format:DVD
I have now watched this four times on HBO and I intend to buy this on either DVD or BluRay or both. There are interviews and footage I have never seen and I have just about everything collectible where the Rolling Stones are concerned. For me, the highlight of this documentary is the alternate alternate version of Jumpin Jack Flash, which I have never seen anywhere and it beats everything else and I wish I could get clear, clean copies of every video of this classic Stones "comeback" single with Brian Jones. (Of course, the Holy Grail of The Stones performing JJF would be The NME Pollwinners concert of The Stones surprise appearance in 1968.) Surprisingly, the period with Brian Jones is handled objectively and, especially with comments by Mick, Keith and Charlie, with much sensitivity. Of course, there is the "Exile in France" period resulting in Exile on Main Street and the 1972 tour and frank talk about Keith's drug problems and so much more. Bill Wyman sounds like a wizened, old man in this doc and he has some excellent remembrances. As does Charlie and Mick Taylor. Well, anyway, I'll probably hit HBO On Demand and watch this again. And again. I'm a fan, of course, but this is one excellent documentary for the 50th Anniversary of The Greatest Rock and Roll Band in the World.

'Crossfire Hurricane' is a tantalizing but peculiar and incomplete look at the Rolling Stones. It's audio interview of the Stones' remembrances of their early days placed over some fairly compelling, illustrative footage. Most notably, we're told that "no cameras were allowed" (when recording the interviews). One can't help think that seeing the rockers up close - Jagger's now famous wrinkles, Richards' ravaged features - would have stolen more than a few measures of energy from the tales of their sixties and early seventies heyday. Jagger is as sharp a business mind as they come and Keith - to the shock of all - remembers everything (as his brilliant biography attests to). So, those restrictions come across as a calculated decision to me. Can't say I blame them, but it gives a production a distant, paint-by-numbers feel at times.

The production pores over their early 60s meet-up through Ronnie Wood's 1975 entry into the band. That means we get a deep dive through that period, through first brushes with stardom and fan hysteria, Brian Jones' dismissal/departure (a particular high point of the film), Mick Taylor's entry and subsequent taking of leave (love Keith calling Taylor a 'virtuoso') and then Wood's arrival. The film doesn't track too closely to albums (think about how obsessively similar Beatles productions do), so I'll best describe things by saying that it there's a fairly constant 'touch' of music up through about Sticky Fingers and Exile on Main Street...with 'Exile' getting more attention than anything else due to the debauchery of the recording sessions in France.

Then, suddenly, it's the 'Some Girls' tour and - even more suddenly - there's a coda of the now-aged band belting out 'All Down the Line.

This is a good program, as far as it goes. But - one short DVD for the STONES??!!?? They require something more comprehensive, like the Beatles Anthology. Here's just a sample of what should have been explored: 1. their background in the British Blues scene. A stones history with no mention of Alexis Korner??!! 2. Background on Mick Taylor. No discussion of his playing with the Gods and John Mayall. 3. Again, background on Ron Wood and the Faces. 4. A huge problem is that the film ends with the beginning of the eighties. There is a whole other history which was not explored. By the way, contributions by Bobby Keys and other sidemen were ignored.

My basic complaint is the film was heavy on showbiz and scandal at the expense of the discussion of the music. For example, Keith's use of open G tuning gained from Ry Cooder. Their meeting with blues heroes would also have been a nice touch (they DID record at Chess in the '60s). Also, a film about the Stones with NO mention of Chuck Berry? Come on!! (pun intended)!! I am coming at this film from the perspective of a musician. People who want a thorough review of the stones as "players" will just have to wait for another film. For those of you who want to see pictures of Mick's bare behind or Keith stoned out of his gourd, though, I guess this is the place to be. I'm sorry, but that's the way I see it.

3.0 out of 5 stars LOVE The Stones - not so much this film April 16, 2013
Format:Blu-ray
I could not WAIT for this to show on HBO! While it was somewhat interesting, I came away from it not knowing too much more about these guys than I did going in. There are some great clips here and there - always good, but when the show was over, I was left wanting more: more detail and more of who these people are.

I will use the example of the other big relatively recent musician documentary, the one Martin Scorcese did about George Harrison. A HUGE Harrison fan, I went in knowing a great deal and left having an even more well-rounded, fuller picture of who George was and how he created. As enjoyable as the clips and music in Crossfire Hurricane, this doc did little to do the same for the Rolling Stones. Nice box shot of Mick though.

The part surrounding Brian Jones' death was appreciated and illuminating, but it still felt incomplete.

These guys are bigger than life to a whole lot of us, but this film felt more like a bad Bob Dylan bio - and nothing was revealed.

Some reviewers have complained about the usage of audio-only narration and the wall that such a device puts between speaker and viewer/listener. I disagree. The Stones built that wall themselves with the audio remarks they chose to include in the film. Watch "The Filth and The Fury" about the Sex Pistols," one of the BEST music docs of all time. They too chose not to be photographed with their narration. It made perfect sense because the band only lasted a short time and the subject of the doc was THAT time, unlike the Stones who are still out there doing it. The Pistols seemed much more authentic and unedited in expressing themselves and it gave me a more complete picture of them individually and them together as a band. It also gave me a new appreciation for them.
