Stoned | Chicago Reader


The 1969 drowning death of Rolling Stones founder Brian Jones has long been the most mysterious of 60s rock-star flameouts, and this UK drama by Stephen Woolley, a longtime producer for Neil Jordan making his directing debut, presents a fairly convincing version of what might have happened. Leo Gregory plays Jones as a psychedelic Pan, resplendent in jodhpurs and feather boas and banging every woman in sight (especially head turning: a Nazi-gear S-M session between Jones and Anita Pallenberg). Paddy Considine (In America) costars as Frank Thorogood, a construction supervisor at Jones's palatial home who's drawn into the licentiousness and develops a crippling envy of his famous party pal. Produced by Finola Dwyer, who also did the Beatles biopic Backbeat, this is of interest mostly to rock fans, though there are no genuine Stones tracks. 102 min.
