A Corker-for the most part
10 June 2001 | by glenwaldenSee all my reviews

I first saw this film on Christmas Eve '90 on BBC TV and I didn't get a chance to watch it all as I was off out on the beer before it finished. I watched it the next morning and it was the ultimate hangover cure; the best bits of this doc are early on when the Stones are still youthfully exuberant ( eg the cross dressing promo for "Stupid Girl" and "Paint It Black" on the Ed Sullivan show). Later on (circa mid-70's onwards) it's a case of Keith Richards' drug addiction and a wilting critical appeal-still, the section with Muddy Waters singing "Manish Boy" with Mick Jagger in a Chicago Blues club around 1980,is well worth the watch, and the part where Keith Richards tries to take a fan's head off with his guitar when he inadvertently comes on stage uninvited is worth a look also. The Brian Jones part about his strange death is also very interesting.
