Tim Grierson Screen International Richards is such a fun interviewee that there's no point kvetching about the film's superficial treatment. Sep 17, 2015 Full Review Kate Robertson There is no mystery to Keith and no real insights to gain here. He is a man who realised very young what it was he wanted to do and has spent every day of his life so far doing it. Aug 13, 2021 Full Review John Beifuss Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN) This is one rock-and-roll deity who truly seems -- as his most famous vocal performance declares -- 'Happy.' Rated: 3/4 Nov 4, 2015 Full Review Roger Moore Movie Nation Grandpa tells the old stories, talks about the old days, smiles and lets us see a more intimate side of what it means to be Keith. Rated: 3/4 Oct 5, 2015 Full Review Nikola Grozdanovic The Playlist 'Under The Influence' is ultimately much more of a listening pleasure than a viewing one.

ma'ark t Keith Richards seems like he is having fun being interviewed and filmed for this doco. He gives some good insight into his life and his love of music shines through. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review georgan g Watching -and listening- to Keith Richards along with some Blues greats was terrific. The whole documentary was like time with an old friend. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member If you don't know the man? Now you do! Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/16/23 Full Review Audience Member Great seeing another side of Keith I did not know he could play the piano. Seeing some rock history makes it very enjoyable. He seems like a very nice guy a must-watch Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/13/23 Full Review Audience Member For music lovers and Keith appreciaters. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/17/23 Full Review Audience Member Good, but needs more focus and depth. The legendary Keith Richards reveals the artists, individuals and music that influenced his music. Interesting documentary, on a very interesting subject. Keith Richards is one of the most influential and successful artists in music history and his views on music are generally worth listening to. The documentary does a reasonable job of showing what and who influenced him, making him the musical genius and megastar he has become. Some good clips from the influential artists, plus Rolling Stones clips and Keith Richards solo clips, including behind-the-scenes footage from him working on his latest album. However, the documentary lacks focus, jumping around and not really making too much of a point in the end. In a way this adds charm to proceedings, as this fits in with the laid-backness of Richards's persona. It would still be nice to have some degree of order though... In addition, as you would imagine of someone of Keith Richards's ilk, his influences are broad and there is much ground to cover. This leaves not much in the way of depth, e.g. reggae gets covered in about 5 minutes and even Chuck Berry, probably the greatest influence on Richards, is only highlighted through the anniversary concert Richards appeared at. A longer, more detailed, documentary would have been great. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/20/23 Full Review Read all reviews
