The rock film of a generation.

To see a film like this is not exactly relatable for me, but one of the most significant throwbacks of my dispositionů If that makes any sense.
With that said, you know I'm not a 'party animal', but I, like many others am an aficionado of the rock genre, which is sadly deteriorating as our musical society becomes more and more indigent in quality, and wealthier and wealthier in bad taste.
This movie is 13 years old, and yet it still holds its ground of what truly was the golden age and reign of music.

To choose the strongest point in the film is a challenge in itself. It feels like every element is paramount. Every song, ever character's expression, every line of dialogue, delivered at the right time, but still feeling natural.
At that time newcomer Patrick Fugit's acting is nothing...

Almost Famous review

Every music lover and fans of rock 'n roll should definitely have this in their video collection. The second viewing of this great film makes it a small classic on iits own. A movie about about the director's experiences with bands such as The Allman Brothers Band, Led Zeppelin, The Eagles was a real treat. William Miller has a sister who thinks someday that he will be cool. They are both guided by their wise mother Elaine (Frances McDormand). William meets a band and quirky Penny Lane (Kate Hudson). Hudson radiates and clearly made the film authentic while the rest (Cudrup, Lee, Fugit, Deschanel) were sincere with the performances. Everything felt realistic from the direction, acting, sets, to the concerts. Impossible not to be touched, smile or think about the lessons one can l...

Almost Famous: Director's Cut

This is one of the best rock and roll movies of all time. The soundtrack is timeless, the characters are realistic and believable. The scenery and cinematography are excellent as well. This story is in many ways about the loss of William's (Fugit) innocence as he experiences first hand how different rock and roll bands are from their portrayal in the media. He clearly sees that his heroes are far from great, as they engage in various forms of debauchery, trade groupies for beer and money, and generally disrespect anyone around them. Perhaps Crowe is on to something with his unsympathetic portrayal of rock bands.

The screenplay is brilliant and Crowe does an excellent job bringing the whole project together. The viewer can clearly see Crowe's fingerprints all over the film, as h...

I am a golden god!

Almost Famous is one of my most favorite movies and I do not understand how someone can not like it. There is so much to it that you can't get off saying the acting is bad. I think Frances McDormond does the best in this film, followed by Philip Seymour Hoffman and then the new comer, Patrick Fugit. Their characters contribute to the movie in their own little ways that make it great. Who better to play an insane headcase of a mother than Frances McDormond? She does an excellent job and literally does "freak me out" as felt by more than one character in the film. But like William says, "She means well." She is a perfect adult figure in the movie because she is practically the only one. Philip Seymour Hoffman is just great. Even if he did not have the most lines because of the flu, his char...
