  • A lot of what takes place in Roadie feels overly familiar, and the film could have been a wallow in pathos except for the performances, especially that of Eldard. show more

  • Soulfully directed by Michael Cuesta ("L.I.E."), Roadie is short on narrative momentum, but it's a perfectly attuned character study of this rock relic and his middle-aged sorrows. show more

  • A slice of slight character-driven conventionality in which directorial sensitivity and drama rooted in tense conversations and intermittent blow-ups prove incapable of imparting depth to a tale that plays like a series of simplistic stock gestures. show more

    Ron Elder is very good as A Roadie who gets fired from his dream job working for the amazing Blue Oyster Cult. The acting is good the story is kind of sad. But the music of Blue Oyster Cult is fantastic. And not just the typical radio fare of Burning for You, Godzilla, and Don\'t Fear the Reaper. There is Buck\'s Boogie with guitar genius Buck Dharma jamming lilke crazy, You have Cities on Flame with Rock and Roll, The Red and The Black and Last 30 Days of May. Great soundtrack by others too A must for BOC fans and all rockers. The Elfman

    Good cast totally wasted with derivative script. No new insights brought to the oft told tale of the \"neigborhood\" kid ************ home still a loser. Ron Eldard does a fine job considering Michael Cuesta\'s writing and direction.
