It’s weird to see this many great flicks in a row, but I can’t heap enough praise on Cameron Crowe’s newest movie. It’s a coming-of-age story set in the early seventies around a rock band on tour. Did they get it right? Hell, yes. So many times you see rock bands in movies portrayed with the same bullshit cliches. Not so here, but that’s just the tip of the iceberg. There’s so much going on in “Almost Famous,” I think anybody could enjoy it. It’s about how much music can mean to people- how it can change lives. Philip Seymour Hoffman, Frances McDormand, Billy Crudup, and newcomers Patrick Fugit and Kate Hudson are all outstanding. Everything about this movie is convincing, and it has a real positive energy throughout. I want to see it again as soon as possible.
