  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
In 1962 Brian Jones (Gregory) rounded up a group of lads and started up a little band that he called The Rolling Stones. The Stones became a huge success, but Brian's appetite for sex, drugs, and rock 'n roll eventually lead to his departure from the group. At the age of 27, after swimming with acquaintance/builder Frank Thorogood (Considine), Brian was found dead in his swimming pool with low traces of drugs and alcohol in his system. Was he drunk, was he "Stoned," or was he murdered? Whatever it was, the reality is that time was not on his side. Based on and inspired by "Paint It Black" by Geoffrey Giuliano, "Who Killed Christopher Robin?" by Terry Rawlings, and "The Murder Of Brian Jones" by Anna Wohlin. (Tricia Spears)

DVD Picture:
The anamorphically enhanced 1.82:1 DVD exhibits a well-defined picture, with balanced contrast and shadow delineation. Colors are nicely saturated, with accurate fleshtones and deep blacks. The picture is quite clean, although some pixelization is noticed. (Suzanne Hodges)
