Almost Famous

     Watched Almost Famous again last night. What a fantastic film. Some beautiful shots, and great dialogue. Possibly Cameron Crowe's best film. The scene after the big fight among the band members the next day when they're driving through the country side on their bus is transcendant. When they all start singing Elton John's "Tiny Dancer" in unison...fantastic. Everything bad just goes away with a little bit of good music and friends.
     With a wonderful performance from Frances McDormand and Kate Hudson's magical acting, it is a journey to behold. If you haven't seen this film yet, rent it now. If you have seen it, check it out again. It is an experience to say the least.
