Watch: Stoned 2005 123movies, Full Movie Online – Fact-based story about the drug-addled and sordid life of The Rolling Stones founder Brian Jones. Unfortunately the story moves so quickly into the sensationalized decadence and drug-induced state of Jones, that the unknowing viewer has to wonder why anyone would care. There are only a few framing sequences with members of The Stones, particularly Keith Richards, that show they had a great respect for him and tried to bring him back into the band as he drifted away. Mixed into the destruction of Jones is a common builder, Frank Thorogood, who is given the unenviable task of trying to please Jones by rebuilding his estate and to watch him per Jones’ manager’s instructions. Thorogood’s life is so far removed from all of the sex and drugs that he sees, that he envies and desires the tawdry life as well, but never quite fits in. Unfortunately, at least according to this film and according to a supposed death bed confessional of Thorogood in 1993, it led to Thorogood’s murder of Jones in a swimming pool “accident”..
Plot: A chronicle of the sordid life and suspicious death of Rolling Stones co-founder Brian Jones, who was found in the bottom of his swimming pool weeks after being let go from the band.

Got this one out on Cheap Tuesday. Fortunately.
No, one should not expect a fictionalization of the Stones’ story, but one does expect a reasonable attempt at a depiction of Brian Jones’ time with them. As it is, the Stones are peripheral characters in the screenplay. Apart from a few bluesy jams, their own music is absent entirely. The story focuses on the relationships between Jones and his foreman/com-padre Frank Thorogood, out at the rock star’s country estate. The large house is conspicuously the movie’s prime set. Fine, ‘Stoned’ had a low budget. Then again, it’s from a real-life story which was basically made up of people talking, fighting and falling over. Not so fine is that ‘Stoned’ had to be so bad. One of the hardest things to swallow about ‘Stoned’ was the casting of Leo Gregory as Jones. He does little characterization beyond a ‘fatalistic’ smile, and although 27 years old himself (Jones’ age at the time of his death), on screen he looks ten years older and wears a risible array of mail-order hairpieces to represent the varying Jones eras. At times he looks like a young Jon Pertwee in a fright wig. The direction by Stephen Wooley is wildly erratic and at times laughable. Jefferson Airplane’s ‘White Rabbit’ underscoring an acid trip scene is the hack cinematic equivalent of the ‘city/pretty’ hack songwriting rhyme. It took Wooley ten years to put this botch-up together? Looks more like it was desperately cobbled together late Sunday night and breathlessly handed in by the Monday 9AM deadline. Another Bad Movie Night contender.
Thoroughly enjoyed this film
Anyway another topic about films…saw ‘Stoned’ last night. A film about the life and death of the Rolling Stones member Brian Jones…The death of whom was quite a shocking event at the time. I thoroughly enjoyed it..
Directed by Stephen Woolley, with Leo Gregory as Jones and Paddy Considine as the man who lived closely with him, Frank Thorogood..
It was a very good surprise..
I had no expectations and was hooked from the start..The actors playing the young Stones were very good at creating the look, feel and attitude of the band and the design of the film, especially the make up of the women cast members, was just evocative of the time in the 60’s..The music was excellent and the editing to the music was superb..Hooked me in from the word go…
