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

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.

Roadie features some wonderfully evocative music out of its characters' collective past (local legends the Good Rats, for instance) but like Jimmy himself, it takes a bit of a push to get the picture going, which it gets, both emotionally and dramatically, thanks largely to its ensemble.

I simultaneously want to endorse its ambition and nerve and report that it's a very mixed bag. Full Review

Michael Cuesta's perfectly-pitched indie captures the pain of arrested development with so much empathy and insight, you can't help but root for the unmoored, overgrown adolescent at its center. Full Review

Time Out New York
It's here, in a keenly captured Forest Hills, Queens, land of low-lit bars and manicured lawns, that Roadie soars as a gently comic drama about living the dream - or trying to. Full Review

New York Post
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. Full Review
