Almost Famous is an autobiographical inspired film about a 15-year-old who is hired by Rolling Stone magazine to follow and interview a rock band during their tour. A film about growing up, first love, disappointment, and the life of a rock star.
"You are home."
The greatest films don't even exist in any form of reality. The images conjured and the feelings emitted cause a magical occurrence, releasing dreams into their purest destinations and furthering the quest for collective empathy. Very few films, even among my favorites, can cause such a cathartic and almost "out-of-body" feeling within me, but Almost Famous never fails to make me see humanity and its massive intricacies so clearly. A beautiful, beautiful film.
Reporter: Mr.Blake what do you love about cinema?
Me: To begin with it....everything else.
I AM A GOLDEN GOD!
This song is never been sung in this film, but can be sing always:
Like a bird on a wire
Like a drunk in a midnight choir
I have tried in my way to be free
Bird on the wire by Leonard Cohen
If I could be more free as much am I, I'll be like a bird on the wire, to sing my own song...Like a bird on the wire...To sing with my friends on the wire...Only to you hear our midnight choir.
Maybe is the only thing I can refer about music and rock 'n' roll. Like a bird…
Its all happening!
I finally watched Almost Famous after a loooooooong time of putting it off.
Sigh.... There's just too many movies and not enough time... But I saw it. And more importantly, I loved it; for obvious reasons. But I also loved this film for being so damn awesome despite having 3 things I passionately hate:
1. Kate Hudson
2. Zooey Deschanel
3. Kate Hudson and Zooey Deschanel being in the same movie.
Luckily Zooey had a small and surprisingly likable part and she didn't have share the screen with Kate "yourwordsmakemypenisshrivel" Hudson. In fact, I think the films only crime is trying to convince us that anyone could ever fall in love with her... But enough about that!…
Why did I wait so long to watch!? Almost Famous might be the best film about music that I've seen. It's a coming of age story that is so different from the rest. I connected with so many characters in this movie, and that rarely happens. Typically, I'll connect with maybe one or two; but that's not the case here. And I think that was mainly due to the outstanding acting from the entire cast. The music! Oh the music was absolutely fantastic!
I tried to think of something negative to say about this movie, even if it was the smallest thing. And I literally can't think of anything. This movie was amazing. The Tiny Dancer scene was just way too good, dang that was awesome. Also, the fact that Russell is Dr. Manhattan in Watchmen is just epic.
Don't forget: DON'T DO DRUGS!
I love it. I adore it. I could eat it everyday if it was healthy enough. Everyone has a favorite food, one that comforts and makes your taste buds sing, culminating in a choir radiating from your slowly-satisfied stomach. Anytime, anywhere, if there's pizza offered, I wanna try it. Of course, if It's a steak restaurant or something, I'll go for the steak, but that's self-explanatory. Basically, comfort food is synonymous with comfort cinema, as it brings the same wondrous pleasures as a bite into a massive slice of deep-dish. The world of film is overflowing with variety, but sometimes, a three hour Fellini isn't what you want to watch on a Saturday night. However, you don't want to…
For all the talk about how desperately uncool this kid is, this movie still seems like the ultimate humblebrag.
Almost Famous; Mostly Perfect
I think all of us who grew up a little on the fringe will find a piece of themselves in this film. Leslie. Leslie was my Penny. A mature, wild woman who, to my adolescent brain, seemed to have cracked the mystery to life. Although she could talk me into making irresponsible decisions I knew were a bad idea, those experiences were apart of my transition into adulthood. That is exactly what Almost Famous is; the perfect coming of age movie.
It's a bit weird to watch this, love it even more than I did the first time (my first exposure to Cameron Crowe, back in the glory days of two years ago), and recognize that it is what broke this director. This is a complete warm hug of a movie, full of positivity for everybody, never anything less than open-hearted, and shot mostly in beautiful, flattering light (Penny Lane walking into gorgeous backlighting is an introductory shot for the ages), and it really does feel like Crowe used up his positive feelings here and was left with scraps for everything else (which works for the faux-positive, mostly ugly Vanilla Sky and less so with the Frankenstein monsters of niceness that…
Maybe I just wasn't in the right mood to watch this, but I really had very little patience for the story of a kid who gets his big break at 15, overbearing male egos, and statutory rape passed off as an unfortunate but acceptable side-effect of the music industry. The passage of time and place is confusing to the point where it becomes distracting and the situations--accurate or not--are so over-the-top that it's hard to relate to anything that's going on.
As of 11:05 PM tonight, only my love for Frances McDormand was unspoiled by this film.
Zooey Deschanel without bangs is the weirdest trip.
Great acting, great story, and great music. I can't ask for more than that. Really enjoyed PSH small role, RIP Mr. Hoffman.
Great Story, Great Performances, Characters You Care About, A Road Trip You Never Want To Stop, One Of My Favorite Movies.
"Do you have to be depressed to write a sad song? Do you have to be in love to write a love song? Is a song better when it really happened to you?”
1. I think it goes without saying that the soundtrack is amazing. One of my favorite songs in the film is one of Led Zeppelin’s most overlooked - ”Tangerine”.
2. However the best usage of a song in Almost Famous has to be the bus ride where ”Tiny Dancer” starts playing. In a crowded space with high tempers and feuding friends, no one can help but forget about their differences and sing along. It’s a very touching moment that quietly reveals the true power of unity…
really interesting film, one of the many that influenced pop culture today
