LAM­BERT & STAMP

Pasatiempo - - MOVING IMAGES -

Here’s a mul­ti­fac­eted por­trait of The Who and its dy­namic man­agers, Chris Stamp and Kit Lam­bert, who dis­cov­ered the mis­fit band as it was “strug­gling to find an im­age and find our feet,” as band mem­ber Pete Town­shend re­lates. De­spite their very dif­fer­ent back­grounds and the facts that they had no money, knew noth­ing about rock ’n’ roll, and had no con­nec­tions, Stamp and Lam­bert brought The Who to the world. This film boasts a marvelous kaleidoscope of im­ages from the time: young peo­ple on the street, danc­ing with aban­don in dark clubs, and chal­leng­ing the cam­era. Rated R. 117 min­utes. Re­gal DeVar­gas.
