It shows how Mick Jagger deals with all kinds of difficult situations. His mental agility is lightning quick, his humour is sublime and he's always polite, no matter who is trying to take from him. I don't think the general public realise how intelligent this man really is. Though he is so able to protect himself, he can let down his guard and express his vulnerability when he sings. A wonderful insight into what it is to be a successful human being.

This is a US import, hence it does not work on UK technology - TV or computer/laptop

A complete waste of time

If anyone knows where I can get a UK version of this movie, I'd love to know. I'm sure it's great, if you're a Rolling Stones fan

Excellent Mini-Rockumentary 24 Aug. 2004
By Kevin Caffrey - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
While only a casual fan of The Rolling Stones, I was intrigued to watch this (originally) TV special when it aired on Thanksgiving in 2001 because you have to admire someone approaching 60 still being creative, spirited, and intent on creating a beautiful work of art. In Mick Jagger's case, this would be his hugely underrated 2001 solo album _Goddess in the Doorway_.

This 'Rockumentary' features Mick in his studio as well as other studios around the world (with Lenny Kravitz, Pete Townshend, Wyclef Jean, etc.) working on songs for _GitD_. At the same time, it features Mick working behind the scenes producing the movie "Enigma" starring Kate Winslet. One interesting scence has Mick attending a charity benefit/party at Elton John's house and the two frankly discuss Madonna's recent tour. Great, candid stuff. The most interesting part of the DVD tho' is just watching Mick Jagger work, writing lyrics, recording vocals, and taping ideas on a tiny recorder. The man is truly one of the most important figures of rock and roll. The fact that new songs such as "God Gave Me Everything" and "Gun" are as vital and as fresh as anything he's ever done is even more amazing.

I'd not only recommend this to Stones/Mick fans, but to anyone who wants to be inspired watching someone being creative in what they do for a living. Additionally, pick up _GitD_ -- it's definitely an album that undeservedly fell by the wayside.

More Mick, Please 12 April 2002
By Professor Tammy Guerrero - Published on Amazon.com
I watched "Being Mick" on Thanksgiving Night. Needless to say, it was the highlight of my holiday weekend. I am an avid Mick Jagger fan and collector. It was great to see the "real" Mick, at home, playing with his kids, and in his recording studio. Most of my other videotapes are at concert venues. It was nice to see him at home and just "being Mick". I would like to see more of this type of thing. I do enjoy the concerts, but it is nice to see documentary type coverage. I am glad he did something like this to show the "new kids" that the mature rockers still have it. --tg

Jumpin' Jack Flash! 29 Mar. 2005
By B. Dey - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
This movie is great fun. One guy above panned it for being a thinly-veiled PR piece and that's very obviously what it is... but it's fun to be able to glimpse into Mick's world and see how a Rolling Stone spends his golden years. He's very campy and funny, which is great. It's also fun to watch him sing old Grahm Parsons and Rolling Stones songs by the piano. And it's funny to see his mild-mannered dad sitting in the background of so many scenes.

What I don't get though is how some people give it five stars. This is not "Citizen Cain" folks! People need to get a clue about how to work the Amazon.com rating system. Five stars should be reserved for classics, one star for crap. Three stars should me "worth buying but it won't change your life." That's how I'd rate this.

I will say this... the renditions of the songs that appear on "Goddess" sound great on here, in their raw form. It's when he gets in the studio and labors over them that they start to sound like crud. He needs to learn that you shouldn't overproduce your records! I mean, how great would a striped-down blues record from the Stones be at this stage in their career?

We thought that Being Mick was a great video. My daughter and I are big Rolling Stones fans. I hope to find more videos like this in the future.

Excellent 17 Aug. 2004
By Stonesforever - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
For anyone who likes Mick Jagger this movie is a must see. This movie gives you a great insight into his life. He is a great father, a loving son. I particularly liked how he spent so much time with his family in every minute of his spare time. It was so fun to watch him travle from place to place. This movie is very funny and a wonderful all around family flim.
