Watch The Stone Roses: Made of Stone - Alternative Versions.
The Stone Roses are definitely a seminal band. In many ways their music
set the scene for the musical landscape of British rock of the 90's.
They didn't really record very much but a lot of what they did has
proved remarkably timeless and sounds as invigorating today as it did
back in the day. They recently reformed to massive excitement and a
whole new legion of fans. So it seemed entirely appropriate that a film
should be made to document their story. So the question has to be does
it do the band and their music justice?
The answer is yes and no. The chief drawback is in fairness not so much
a criticism of the film but maybe more one of expectation and that is
that this doesn't really tell the story of the band, it actually
specifically documents their reformation. While there is some archive
footage, there isn't a lot (an especial shame seeing as the car crash
interview with Ian Brown and John Squire from the archives is one of
the best moments). There isn't any narrative that documents the rise of
the Roses or discusses their albums or singles. And for a band with a
fairly slim back catalogue, it's a shame that it doesn't even feature
excerpts from all of their most famous tracks. Furthermore, quite a lot
of the songs are recent live recordings, as opposed to the classic
studio versions. These criticisms may seem picky but as a fan I was
hoping to see a film detail their rise, discuss their music and detail
their impact on the wider music culture.
What we do have is mainly recent footage of the band. There's really
not a great deal of drama, the one bad moment being the Amsterdam gig
where Reni refused to back on for an encore causing a lot of ill
feeling and the cancellation of the remainder of the European tour. In
the main it's really a documentary that focuses on positivity. Director
Shane Meadows is too much of a gentleman and a big fan of the band to
dwell on any negativity. This can affect the dynamic of the film
overall but you can't criticise the sentiment. We see them playing a
lot, jamming together and then later on stage in various gigs. The free
show in Warrington was documented in more depth. Much of the focus was
on the fans themselves here and as fun as this was, like them, we are
really here to see the band. The finale is the huge Heaton Park gig and
it's here that we have the highlight of the whole movie an absolutely
blistering version of Fool's Gold. It's moments like this that really
underlines the power and legacy of the group.
