Blu-ray Release: Lambert and Stamp

August 18, 2015

Lambert and Stamp Blu-rayToday, Sony Pictures Classics is releasing the recent rock documentary Lambert and Stamp on Blu-ray.  The film tells the story of Kit Lambert and Chris Stamp, a pair of aspiring filmmakers who wanted to direct a movie about a rock band and ended up mentoring and managing The Who in the process, helping craft the rebellious British group into the legendary musical act they would ultimately become.

Although running long at nearly two hours, Lambert and Stamp is filled with a wealth of archival footage, and some engaging stories about The Who.  Told through intimate interviews with the remaining members, director James D. Cooper has assembled a worthwhile doc that affectively paints a portrait of the era, revealing the fascinating and sometimes dramatic story of these clever managers who were key to helping build the band’s success.

The Blu-ray includes commentary with James D. Cooper, a Q&A with the director and Henry Rollins, as well as rarely seen archival footage of The Who at the height of their fame.

Lambert and Stamp is 117 minutes and rated 14A.
