Almost Famous

Been a long time since I saw this one...and I always liked the film, but can't say I loved it. Still don't. But damn, it's a hell of a movie. All heart. It made me deeply sad to finish the film because it feels like it was made ages ago...and I cannot imagine it getting made today. There's just a million reasons why it wouldn't work - no stars (or, all stars, could be another way of looking at the casting), I can see it being taken apart on the internet for being too white. It's a period piece. A drama. Funny to see how many character actors went on to headline tv series from the movie - Zooey Deschanel, Frances McDormand, Jason Lee, Anna Paquin, Jay Baruchel.

I don't know. A lament for an era of cinema that's gone.
