5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing film!, 28 Jan. 2003
This review is from: Almost Famous [DVD] [2001] (DVD)
Absolutely my favourite film of the past five years and that includes Lord of the Rings!
It truly is an absolute masterpiece and deserves to be in everybody's DVD collection.
Essentially it is an old fashioned coming of age tale but set against the irresistably cool background of 1973, it is taken to a far higher level.
Perhaps the best and most surprising aspect of this film is the quality of the acting involved. Billy Crudup is absolutely pitch perfect in the "guitarist with mystique" role and plays his part so well and with such conviction, that it is hard to believe that he himself was not truly a part of the 70's. Much has been made of Kate Hudson in this film - but it is true - she truly is fantastic in a demanding part calling for equal parts illuminating and tragic.
But it is the soundtrack that makes this a truly fantastic film. Songs such as "Feel Flows" by the Beach Boys perfectly portray the message that the film has.
I would recommend the extended cut DVD for more extras - but the version on sale here is more than you need to experience the first truly great film of the new century!
