Review by: Lucas Samuels
There’s a certain irony captured in Stephen Kijak’s film Stones In Exile, the documentary of The Rolling Stones’ now legendary double record, Exile On Main St.
Fan or not of this ubiquitous Toronto collective, Broken Social Scene’s grandiose and dramatic flare for music is undeniable and almost tailored-made to accompany the big screen, as seen in the past with Half Nelson and The Tracy Fragments.
It is considered to be one of the most influential albums ever made; one that revolutionized punk rock and inspired the sound of countless acts to follow. Originally released in 1973, though far ahead of its time, Iggy And The Stooges’ Raw Power has recently been reissued and with it comes an intimate documentary by Morgan Neville detailing the album's turbulant creation, titled Search & Destroy: Iggy And The Stooges’ Raw Power.
