  • Alan Rickman's lead performance highlights a sincere but insubstantial rock pic. show more

  • The absolute antithesis to the pioneering punk spirit it tries to portray. show more

  • Rickman is too theatrical, and too British, to vanish entirely into the person of Hilly Kristal. But he's entertaining to watch, and ultimately one of the more persuasive actors in a movie that suffers from as many odd casting decisions as Lee Daniels' The Butler. show more
