THE QUIET ONE offers a unique behind-the-scenes look at the highs and lows of the life and career of Bill Wyman, former founding member of the Rolling Stones and renaissance man of rock and roll. Against the odds Bill escaped a bleak future in post-war, working class London to find himself at the very centre of a musical and cultural revolution. As a Rolling Stone he embarked on record-breaking world tours, dealt with feuding band mates and befriended some of the world's most iconic musicians, actors, sportsmen and artists. Then, to people's amazement he walked away from it all to commit to a new family and to set about documenting and preserving the memory of the 'rock and roll revolution'. Since leaving the Stones Bill has toured the world with his all-star band the Rhythm Kings as well as exhibiting his renowned photography. A keen archaeologist, Bill acts as a historical consultant on film and documentary projects and has written nine books on a variety of subjects. Throughout his career Bill shot hours of unseen film footage, took thousands of photographs, collected a vast archive of memorabilia and kept a detailed diary of each and every single day. Watching this footage and hearing the stories is like going back in time and standing at Bill's shoulder, experiencing this privileged access at first hand. The film uses his huge archive as the catalyst for stories about Bill's experience of wartime poverty, his love of blues music, the rise of the Rolling Stones, the 1960s counter culture, exile in France, his 1970s super groups, 1980s excesses and his life's work documenting and preserving the memory of such an important period of cultural and musical history.

This documentary is about the slow death of the video store, and the struggles of the owners. The documentary is as intriguing as it is informative. The owner of the Video Store, who is called "The Quiet One" by his employees, is interviewed, and the other employees talk about the store, the customers, and their own experiences in the store. The owner himself talks about his work, and about how his business is not what he expected, and how he is not afraid to take chances on new ideas. It is a great documentary, and I recommend it to anyone who likes documentaries about video stores.

This is a nice and interesting documentary about the rise of folk singer Jimi Hendrix. It's an engaging documentary, but it does have some flaws. There's a little too much focus on the man himself, which detracts from the film. And the film focuses too much on the late 60's and early 70's, which is just not as interesting a period as the 50's and 60's. It's just too dry. It's also not very interesting in terms of the music. There are a few great tracks, but they are overshadowed by the very few great tracks from the 50's and 60's. However, the film does have a few good points. It shows Hendrix's appreciation for the music, and his interest in the music. It also has interviews with his bandmates and manager. The film does a good job of showing how Hendrix's life changed when he started to tour. He was a very successful and popular rock star in his own right, but he was also becoming a much more popular artist. And his fame was making him a lot more money. The film does a good job of showing the change in his life. And the music. It is a good documentary. It's not a great documentary, but it's a good one. It does have a few flaws, but it does have some good points.

Since I'm not from Europe, I didn't get to experience the happy beaches and peace, but this documentary is about the people's lives. It has a lot of the local people speaking English, which helps them understand the people's actions, and also explains why they are doing what they are doing. This documentary also has a lot of the famous artists talking about their favorite music, and why they have been influenced by it. In general, this documentary is not very interesting, but if you are from Europe, this documentary is definitely for you. It's really interesting to hear from artists who have played in Europe, and who play in Europe. From the start to the end of the documentary, there are many different songs. It's very interesting to hear that, when Europe is at it's best, the artists go to America. You know that if you want to hear them perform in America, you can't miss it. It is a little bit long, but it's well-made. It really makes you wonder about the people's lives and why they do what they do.
