About the Movie

"Crossfire Hurricane", directed by Brett Morgen, is released as part of the ongoing 50th anniversary celebrations of The Rolling Stones. This superb new film tells the story of the Stones' unparalleled journey from blues obsessed teenagers in the early sixties to their undisputed status as rock royalty. All of The Rolling Stones have been newly interviewed and their words form the narrative arc that links together archive footage of performances, news coverage and interviews, much of it previously unseen. Taking its title from a lyric in "Jumpin' Jack Flash", "Crossfire Hurricane" gives the viewer an intimate insight into exactly what it's like to be part of The Rolling Stones as they overcome denunciation, drugs, dissensions and death to become the definitive survivors. Over a year in the making and produced with the full co-operation and involvement of The Rolling Stones, "Crossfire Hurricane" is and will remain the definitive story of the world's greatest rock 'n' roll band.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: It's not a revelation, but it's an intimate story of the band, with performance sequences that show how five guys-in different lineups -- came together and made an entity of pure fire and sex. – James Poniewozik, TIME Magazine, Nov 16, 2012

Fresh: This tribute to the Rolling Stones offers a blizzard of archive material nimbly sutured together with interviews with the Stones themselves, making this a succinct, officially sanctioned but not necessarily fawning history of the band. – Leslie Felperin, Variety, Nov 16, 2012

Fresh: he music, at least, has remained unruly. They may be an institution, but they remain just crummy enough to keep from ever seeming slick. – Robert Lloyd, Los Angeles Times, Nov 16, 2012

Fresh: Fortunately, these Mount Rushmore-faced rock icons still have sufficiently supercharged charisma and brilliant music to carry off such a transparently commercial exercise in self-promotion. – Stephen Dalton, Hollywood Reporter, Oct 18, 2012

Love it

Masterpiece

I am a life long Stones fan and this relase is an instant classic. I enjoyed the bonus footage and sometimes I think we forget just how good a slide guitar player Brian Jones was and this a is a sober reminder of a talent laid to waste. From die hard to the casual fan this is a must have

World's Greatest Rock N Roll Band

I cannot begin to describe how much this documentary changed the way I view this beautiful time period in music as well as history. The footage and storyline are so riveting and offer a different perspective to this band that many like myself, who weren't alive to know what kind of mark they left during the 1960's and 70's, can now understand and appreciate. Definitely a must-watch for anyone interested in history, music, or the World's Greatest Rock n Roll band.
