      Larushka Ivan-Zadeh Energetic and upbeat, this draws a fringe over why the band keep self-destructing, making it uninsightful, particularly to the uninitiated. But, hey, let's be honest: who else but true fans are going to watch it anyway? Rated: 3/5 Sep 5, 2017 Full Review Anita Gates New York Times By the time the long, throbbing concert finale begins, there is no doubt that Mr. Brown's intensity has not faded over the years and that the Stone Roses' breakup was a serious loss. Nov 5, 2013 Full Review Jessica Kiang The Playlist Made of Stone is a faithful, fan's-eye account of the band's return that also serves as a good primer in their music and their massive influence for the uninitiated. Rated: B- Jul 5, 2013 Full Review Lucy Jones NME (New Musical Express) What Shane Meadows' reunion doc lacks in journalistic rigour, it makes up for with tear-jerking affection... Rated: 4/5 Jun 15, 2021 Full Review Joseph Walsh CineVue Is Meadows' Made of Stone a fanboy movie? Absolutely and unashamedly. Rated: 3/5 Aug 23, 2018 Full Review Jason Solomons The Mail on Sunday (UK) There's a marvellous little film lurking inside Shane Meadows's loving documentary The Stone Roses: Made Of Stone but you have to get through some slush to find it.

      Audience Member The greatest British band since the Beatles return. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/11/23 Full Review Audience Member As fun as it is to watch The Stone Roses rehearse and gig, this is a huge disappointment, especially when compared to a similar recent documentary like Oasis: Supersonic. It all feels a bit disjointed and lazy. It's not a full biopic and not really a snapshot of a particular period either. There's no particular narrative angle and ultimately here's nothing really to be learnt from it. Shane Meadows is a great filmmaker but documentaries clearly aren't his forte. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/10/23 Full Review Audience Member an artsy well directed fan loving tribute to the legendary Madchester Brit band of 90s fame who were also legendary for record company woes, break ups and disappearing. Equally legendary Brit filmmakers Shane (This is England) Meadows made this well crafted loving lively doc a few years ago when the Roses surprises fans and journalists with a reunion If you dont know the Stone Roses nor Shane Meadows you should stop whining about how all things suck and fix that as Meadows had made a bunch of TV mostly and movie stuff, esp around his terrific This is England series, and the Roses are one of the best Brit bands, esp since the English Invasion of the 60s and in spite of the catchiness of a few Oasis tunes and a few one hit Blur type wonders, musically the Roses always struck me as way better, and nicer and more poetic, than that other stuff...Waterfall and Love Spreads are as melodic and beautiful pop tunes now as they were in the 90s Anyway, as with the likes of Scorsese when he teams up with the likes of the Band and the Stones and George Harrison and Demme wih Talking Heads, this linking artistically of a great filmmaker with terrific musicians leads to good things. Not a perfect movie, and a bit meandering, it is nonetheless engaging and filled with an array of stock footage from the original era, the reunion and more Also, i could complain about having a hard time with some of the accents, esp those Manchester boys, but that would be my fault... Bravo Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/25/23 Full Review Audience Member There's nothing really compelling in the style or mood of this documentary as this is clearly a busman's holiday feature from Shane Meadows simply for the love of the band. And if you enjoy the Roses music then it's a must see story of their reunion. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/06/23 Full Review Audience Member Shane Meadows is given access to legendary band The Stone Roses as they prepare to reform for a series of gigs leading up to a triumphant homecoming series of concerts at Manchester's Heaton Park. Part rockumentary, part concert film, Meadows is clearly the kid in the sweet shop here as he gets to spend time with his favourite band during their unthought of and seemingly impossible reunion. The behind the scenes bits are fun and Meadows has access to some great historical footage, but it's when the band are jamming together that this film shines. Playing Waterfall in that tiny studio put a massive grin on my face. A film for fans; partly about fans; made by a fan. Nothing truly insightful, but a fun time. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/24/23 Full Review Audience Member The director is to much of a fucking fanboy to do the film any justice. Just as the movie gets interesting (Reni storming of stage) he cuts and never mentions the rift again. See the Metallica Doco for a better insight into the inner workings of a big band .
