Leo Gregory, in a shaky but strong performance, is presented in many shades as a man who is depicted as a rather tortured, but utterly manipulative. Even before stardom. Paddy Considine (who can’t star in a film without stealing scenes away from everyone) co-stars as Frank Thorogood, the man who’d bring about Jones’ fate whether he knew it or not. Frank is a sketchy man from his introduction to Brian. Brian befriends him and enters in to a relationship based around sadomasochism, and homosexual overtones that begin a descent in to the inevitable death of Jones. That said Woolley’s direction attempts too often to be surreal for its own good most times.
Before being an actor, Bruce Willis worked as a private investigator.
“Stoned” also doesn’t entirely focus so much on the Stones’ musical creation, so much as it instead sensationalizes the private life of Jones. This will turn some off and even disappoint those that invest their time in “Stoned” to gain some keen insight in to their interplay. In Morrison’s poem “Ode to LA while thinking of Brian Jones, Deceased,” he wrote: “I hope you went out, Smiling Like a child, Into the cool remnant of a dream” which director Woolley wisely pays homage to in the film’s last scene. I’m not one who particularly likes music biopics, but “Stoned” enlists enough talent and garners enough gravitas and atmosphere to chug to the climax as a pretty okay bit of speculative crime fiction.
And Clownfish Vanished After Finding Nemo. Just as there was a run on pet rats, the population of clownfish in their natural habitats took a precipitous drop following the release of Finding Nemo, which stars a clownfish. Marine biologists reported that the numbers of the fish dropped by as much as 75 percent in the Australian reefs they inhabit.
"Armageddon." NASA shows this film during their management training program. New managers are given the task of trying to spot as many errors as possible. At least one hundred sixty-eight have been found.
