A gifted musician, influential fashion icon and indiscriminate womanizer, Jones (Gregory) rode a glittering staircase to stardom for seven short years before being fired by the band. Shortly afterwards, he was found dead in the deep end of his own swimming pool and in the wake of his tragic death he became a legend. This is the directorial debut of Stephen Woolley, longtime producer for filmmaker Neil Jordan. (Landmark Theatres) Expand

  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.
  2. 63
    Stoned carries a freaked-out buzz of nostalgia for the era when celebs willfully destroyed themselves for our amusement.
  3. 60
    A must for any true rock aficionado.
  4. 40
    What we really need from Stoned, the very thing that it fails to give us, is a sense of Jones as a human being.
  5. 40
    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.
  6. Stoned accomplishes the unlikely feat of making the golden years before medical science and the law caught up with rock culture look dull.
  7. Almost so bad it's good. Almost.

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

    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. Expand
