  • If you haven't already sold your soul to rock & roll, Almost Famous should seal the deal.

  • Crowe is so good on mood and milieu that when Elton John's bubblegum ballad "Tiny Dancer" swells on the soundtrack, in this context it sounds like a hymn.

  • Crowe's script is a thing of wonder, and he again proves himself to be an outstanding director of actors.
