The Rolling Stones

Crossfire Hurricane DVD

Review by Gary Hill

When I started watching this and the concept was revealed, my expectations were lowered a bit. The premise here is that new interviews were done with the Stones (audio only) and I was wondering if we were going to be watching a blank screen while they talked. That’s not the case. Instead, the Stones narrate their own story as archival footage and other things play. I think it’s a brilliant concept and works extremely well. It’s a great look inside a legendary band. I kind of wish it was longer and came up to the present (or at least closer to it) but for my money this might well be the best Stones documentary ever. Some of this footage is just plain amazing and with the Stones themselves essentially telling their story, this is a top notch production.
