This review is from: The Stone Roses: Made of Stone (2-Disc Collectors Edition) [Blu-ray]  (Blu-ray)
I was absolutely blown away by Made of Stone. Shane has a background in dramas that are filled with humour and that comes through perfectly from the band. He manages to create a real sense of the dynamic between each member of The Stone Roses and builds upon this to place viewers right in the center of the building sense of excitement around the Heaton Park gig.
I'm also unable to recall a music based documentary that does such a sterling job of joining the music to the visuals. There are a number of distinct choices he's made for each musical moment that allows him to explore different performances in different ways. From the electric rehearsal, which sparks with laughter and a shocked awe from the crew through the crowd pleasing moments around Parr Hall you'll be blown away by how engaging and moving every shot is.
From Parr Hall we follow the lows at the end of the European tour to the moment of glory in Heaton. In the final scenes you simply watch the band, almost divorced from the crowds and the events and simply washed over by the performance. And then, the final musical moment - it creates an almost transcendental sense of joy.
You won't be able to look away from a frame. I love Shane's other work so I can't be certain this is his best film but I honestly think it may be the single best music documentary that has been made.
Live those moments again, you'll want to be back in the cinema in a second to watch every moment again.
