Almost Famous


Dir. Cameron Crowe. 2000, 122 mins. 35mm. With Billy Crudup, Patrick Fugit, Kate Hudson, Philip Seymour Hoffman. In Cameron Crowe’s lovingly detailed self-portrait of an underage rock journalist, an endearing but clear-eyed valentine to a world of trashed hotel rooms, long bus rides, groupies, and greedy businessmen, Hoffman is the movie’s heart and soul as the iconoclastic music critic Lester Bangs. As Crowe said, Hoffman “soaked in the mannerisms and gregarious sharpness of Lester’s wit.”
