What’s the secret to making a documentary about Keith Richards? Not letting him realize when you’re shooting. That’s according to the Rolling Stones guitarist himself, the subject of a new film called Keith Richards: Under the Influence (released on Netflix, Sept. 18).
“It’s quite interesting,” says Richards, whose new album, Crosseyed Heart, is also out Sept. 18. “Morgan Neville (Twenty Feet From Stardom) who directed it, is quite incredible. He actually shot it all around me without me being aware that it was happening. I was like, ‘Cool.’ Because I’m working on the road with the Stones. But he had a great way of not interfering. To me, it was as big a surprise as to anybody. But it’s pretty damned good. He’s done a great job. Buddy Guy, and some [other] cats, and a few things are explained. And I’m great!”
Keith Richards: Under the Influence, receives its world premiere at the Toronto Film Festival on Sept. 17. You can see the new trailer for the film above.
