Stephen Woolley: A Life In Film

Stephen Woolley

Stoned (2005)

A man of many talents, 2005 saw Woolley turn his hand to directing – with lesser known but very well received biographical drama, Stoned, the result. A highly absorbing and accomplished tale of the demise of the Rolling Stones founder, Brian Jones, it took Woolley 10 years to get the film to the big screen – a true labour of love that paid off handsomely.



For the camera-work, colour and montage sequences alone Stoned is worth seeing, but that’s not where its merits end. Whether a fan of the band or not, this is an interesting film full of directing techniques and skilful editing that blend into a heady mix of rock and roll excess which takes the viewer to the sixties and back through one of the most interesting stories of the time.
