The Stone Roses: Made of Stone 

When: Wed., Nov. 6, 7 & 9:30 p.m. 2013
It seems rock bands that come out of Manchester, England, always come with a volatile history (this is Oasis country, after all), even if they don't last long enough to accumulate an eventful, tumultuous timeline. With only two studio albums, released in 1989 and 1994, the Stone Roses appeared to implode before they really took off. In the documentary The Stone Roses: Made of Stone, Brit director Shane Meadows (This Is England, Once Upon a Time in the Midlands) chronicles the band's rocky story and follows them around as they embark on a worldwide reunion tour. The movie is largely a love letter to the band's fans, Meadows being one of them. He spends an exorbitant amount of time filming die-hards as they scurry to pick up free tickets for a just-announced warm-up show. He also films a climactic concert at Manchester's Heaton Park as an orgiastic, coolly slo-mo blur, the massive crowd caught up in the excitement.? —Craig D. Lindsey
