DVD & Blu-ray review: Stone Roses: Made of Stone (15)
Shane Meadows DVD/Blu-ray (96 mins)
Friday 18 October 2013
“It's inevitable really,” murmurs Ian Brown in 1989 about the chances of his band's future success. Three weeks later, the Stone Roses had changed the pop landscape. Shane Meadows makes deft use of old footage (the Spike Island gig, the early, awkward interviews) in his gushing document of the Manchester band's unexpected return last year. Don't expect a warts and all hatchet job here – drummer Reni's storm out in Amsterdam isn't sufficiently documented, for instance. It's a failing, but Meadows' film aims to eulogise and, on that level, it succeeds.
