Almost Famous

I recently watched Almost Famous from a recording. I think this is a fabulous movie. I had seen it during its theatrical release and it was just as good the second time. The story of a bright teenager who gets involved with a 70's rock band and its followers, while writing a story for Rolling Stone magazine is just about perfect. It captures the impact that music has on its fans. It captures the imperfect people that succeed in creating music. It captures the sense of awe or wonder one would feel if they got to ride on the bus with the band.

As much as I liked the plot of this movie, its real strength is in the casting and acting. With the exception of the main characters sister, I can’t imagine any actor being better suited to each of the roles than those that were cast. If you want to understand rock and roll music, I can’t think of a better movie. On my scale of 1-100, I rate it a 93.
