Almost Famous 
Almost Famous: Director's Cut
4/4 stars

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 he was himself a teenage writer for Rolling Stone. Overall, Almost Famous is a very fine film with some excellent (yet understated) acting, terrific writing, and excellent directing from Crowe. It is a shame that the film was a box office bomb when originally released, but perhaps people will see it now because of reviews such as this one.
