Just LOVED this movie. This could've been my senior year in High School ! My boyfriend and I listened to all the older blues artists and songs referred to in this film. That is why we loved the Rolling Stones so much, because they liked them, too ! I am definitely buying the soundtrack .

Rock n Roll will never die but this movie comes close to killing it.

The film may be too meandering for mainstream acceptance, but its focus will make the Paramount Vantage release connect directly with many baby boomers. It's also a warm, funny, poignant scrapbook that evokes a spirit of youth still relatable in later eras. Full Review
The highlight of Not Fade Away, a meandering and bittersweet coming-of-age story, is its killer '60s pop-rock soundtrack. Full Review
It's a period piece composed of familiar pieces, none of which have much to say beyond surface elements that have been explored countless times before. Using a typical coming-of-age mold, Chase turns cultural ephemera into formula. Full Review
Los Angeles Times
A stirring snapshot of America from 1963 to 1968 and the many rock 'n' roll thrills, cultural and political watersheds, and whirling emotions that erupted in between. It's also deviously smart and darkly funny. Full Review

Triumphs when David Chase's empowerment as a kind of autobiographical historian is balanced with the thrill of submersing the viewer in the tidal pool of his memories Full Review
