Almost Famous (2000)

A (very cool) tribute to 70's rock'n'roll — Written by ninarocha on 11.12.2011

Almost Famous is truly a school of rock. William Miller (Patrick Fugit) is a forward teenager that founds out music and get an interview with the fictional band Stillwater (that is like a mix of Lynyrd Skynyrd, great choices at the soundtrack). The musical scene on 70's is conducive to amazing rock'n'roll stories like this one. With a little autobiography influence of Cameron Crowe, that went out in 73 with the team of the legendary magazine and wrote many articles of one of the greatest moments of rock music being only 16 years old. Even though William is overprotected by his mom, we goes out on tour with Stillwater, but soon, sees himself divided by the friendship with the band crew, the truth behind the stage and his platonic love with the groupie Penny Lane (Kate Hudosn). The characters are catching and the movie is an honest report about the music for its lovers. With memorable scenes, such as when the band and the movie sings Elton John's "Tiny Dancer" in the bus, or when Russel Hammond (Billy Crudup) stoned on acid screams from the top of the roof that he's a golden god. It's a obligatory movie for everyone that ever wanted to be on stage with all the fever of rock'n'roll cliches: sex and drugs. And of course, lots of fun.
