  1. It's a depressing story made even more of a downer by the absence of any Stones-performed music from their prime '60s years.

    Newcomer Gregory never captures the mercurial charisma for which Jones was famous (and which Jagger notoriously channeled in his movie debut, "Performance"), without which his story is just another cautionary tale about fast times, intemperate passions and bad dope.

    Stoned carries a freaked-out buzz of nostalgia for the era when celebs willfully destroyed themselves for our amusement.
  4. The good news here is that Woolley and his writers have taken the mystery surrounding Jones' tragic 1969 death as their main interest, and have adopted as fact the long-cherished rumor that the blond rocker's drowning was a case of murder. It may be speculative history, but at least it's a story.

    As a life long fan of The Stones and still remembering the devastation I felt when I heard he had passed the movie has nullified all that. As a life long fan of The Stones and still remembering the devastation I felt when I heard he had passed the movie has nullified all that. I'm not much into sugar coating but I can not believe that the director couldn't have found some positive in the mans life. If Jones was such a selfish mean spirited jerk then I guess it should no longer come to us as such a surprise whether he killed himself or someone offed him. He unfortunatley didn't deserve what could have been. Full Review »

    Really a super boring and dull movie. No Rolling Stones music either. I would avoid this one.
