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.

Amazon is offering this excellent DVD for only $9.99!!! Trust me if you are a Stones fan or know someone who is, this is a must have for their collection!!!
My notes show a wide range of events that struck me on this DVD: Dick Cavett's presence on the DVD, the concert footage ("Street Fighting Man," for instance), life on tours, audiences and their reaction to the Stones, Andrew Loog Oldham, media interviews (e.g., someone asking Charlie Watts about why the Stones were successful and his succinct answer--"The music!"), Brian Jones and his role with the Stones and with his demise, the Hyde Park concert and Jones, Mick Taylor and Ron Woods taking over Jones' role, Altamount and its horror, Kaith Richards' legal troubles in Canada. . .
My only wish? The story ends too early. We do not really get a view of the Stones later on. Bill Wyman's departure, Keith's and Mick's on and off relationship, the ambitious world tours, the challenges (Charlie's health problems), and so on.
So, the bottom line? I really enjoyed this. But it felt incomplete. . . .
Still, there is archival footage here that I've never seen, particularly from the first five years, and the delivery of the story is well-told and well-paced for what it is. And yet, I still have this hope that a great director like Martin Scorsese will come along and do for the Stones what Scorsese did for George Harrison and Bob Dylan, and give us a real warts-and-all comprehensive study of this greatest rock and roll back of all time. That probably means waiting until Mick doesn't exercise control over content, which mean I could be very old by then.
