Charlie Is My Darling (1966)

Charlie Is My Darling follows two days in the life of The Rolling Stones during their tour of Ireland in 1965

Three months before shooting the tour, director Peter Whitehead captured a strange union of stillness and chaos in Beat poet documentary Wholly Communion.

His cameras capture a similar magnetic tension here: on-stage they’re battered by the band’s pugilistic R&B, while in the inner sanctum of the groups’ hotel rooms they bring relative serenity, moving past Jagger and Richards’ Beatles mockery to focus on Brian Jones’s mannered outsider status.
