In 2012, a resurrection no-one thought possible took place when legendary band, The Stone Roses reformed after 16 years.
With unprecedented access to previously unseen archive footage, Made of Stone is a revealing journey through the life of one of the most revered and influential bands in British music history.
Acclaimed film-maker Shane Meadows brings his unique directorial style, humour and emotional depth to the film, capturing the band at work and in their everyday lives as they rehearsed for their much-anticipated reunion, which culminated in three triumphant homecoming gigs at Manchester's Heaton Park in front of 220,000 adoring fans.
Incorporating never-seen-before material spanning the band's musical history, the personal experiences of many of those touched by the band and their music, and unparalleled access to the record-breaking sell-out concerts which took place in summer 2012, this is the definitive record of the definitive band of the past 25 years.

However for 'newbies' to the music of the Roses their history gets documented in narration by the band themselves with revealing archive footage and TV interviews. Shane Meadows has been unfairly criticized by the the odd reviewer for not adopting the inquisitive journalistic approach in this documentary but for me and countless others I'm sure he was perfectly right to focus on the music and fans and not the personal lives of individual band members There are countless biographies around on 'The Stone Roses' so the message is resoundingly clear, if your after more in-depth personal information on the individual band members go buy a book or surf the Internet and rightly so.
Shane, a huge Stone Roses himself, lets the camera roll and lets the music and fans do the talking. There is wonderful rehearsal and warm up gig footage that ends with their culmination gig at Heaton Park. When a free gig at Warrington is announced on the day the gig was to take place itself Shane is there with camera in hand to capture devoted fans arrive unceremoniously as they queue in hope and sheer desperation to get one of only 1000 tickets issued.
There are some great moments here as fans talk candidly about their love of the Stone Roses and how the music has meant so much to them in their lives. As with the age of the band members many are middle aged people now.Read more ›
As expected, the access he has to the boys is unprecidented and this really becomes apparent during the jaw-dropping rehearsal footage. Shane was able to get right in their faces and you see them connect with each other like never before. I was smiling so hard my face was aching and just seeing this footage is worth whatever price Amazon ends up charging for the DVD. I was lucky enough to see it on the big screen last night and I can't wait to get my hands on a copy so I can watch it again. And again.
There are so many other highlights - the Parr Hall footage that takes you behind the scenes but also makes you feel like you were AT the gig (I've never felt that from any other documentary or live film before) - the Heaton Park footage - the opening scene that just pulls you in and gives you goose bumps - the fan interviews that make you realise how much they still mean to so many people. I could go on and on.
Basically, if you're a fan go and see it at the cinema!!! If you missed the chance to do that, pre-order this DVD and wait by the letter box until it arrives.
You won't regret it, you lucky people. Cheers Shane - you nailed it!
Anyone who went to the Heaton park show will know what an incredible show it was, and the build up and backstage access and coverage of the day is non-existent in the film. A real shame.
It's still a must have for any Roses fan and inspirational, but prepare for some disappointment as the film doesn't get the ending it deserves.
The film is ostensibly the journey from announcing the reformation to the triumphant Heaton Park gigs that The Roses put on in the summer of 2012. The intimate footage of the band members is in segments of footage before the press conference to announce their resurrection and before their warm-up concert in Warrington. The performance footage comes from the aforementioned Warrington, Heaton Park and, perhaps best of all, the rehearsal room.
I am a devoted Stone Roses fan. Like many people. There are significant parts of this film that are about the fans. I am not interested in Stone Roses fans. I saw the premiere of this film (a featurette about the premiere is on the extras disc) and the bits I hated were the massive cheers for (1) they guy from the trailer who claims The Stone Roses are the reason he has never worn a tie - he definitely has worn a tie, and (2) when the footage from Heaton Park included a bit where around 100 people force down a perimeter fence and jib the gig. I didn't cheer, I'd paid £65 to get into that gig and seeing people steal it annoyed me.
Mainly the film focusses on the four members of one of the greatest bands ever. There is some great archive footage, which shows why anyone would fall in love with this charm: their confidence and charm was central to their appeal. That and the music.
If I was asking for more it would have been more interview with band talking.Read more ›
