Tonight I went to the video store. There was nothing good in the New Releases section, so I decided to search out a title I'd heard loads of good things about. I'd been meaning to rent it, but I never seemed to get around to it. That movie was Almost Famous. Here's a movie about music that's about everything but the music. And damned if it isn't the best movie I've seen in a long time. Fuck A Beautiful Mind. That's the truth... the sunny side of the truth even. This is the truth through the eyes of a 15 year old. This is the truth filtered through booze, pot, and acid. You see so many movies set in a time period. This is the first I've experienced where you can actually live in it. "What do you love about music?" "To begin with, everything." You go through the emotional experiences of the characters -- William in particular. When times are good, you'd kill to be there. When times are bad, you're glad your in you HT, nearly three decades away. Thanks for reading... and don't do drugs.
