Not Fade Away is an eloquent love letter to an era, one in which times were changing faster than they had ever seemed to before and great music was heard from radios, TVs, and gramophones just about everywhere you went.

We know what's coming, it isn't terribly original, but it's hard not to like it. You won't discover a new sound that you've never heard before, but you'll sit back and sing along.

As the title oh-so-obviously implies, it's a love that will-well, you know.

There's a nice, pop-in-and-see rhythm to the storytelling. Gandolfini's Pat descends into a rich sadness. There's wry humour to be had with Douglas and his idealizing buddies. Loneliness and longing lounge around together.

Hits notes you thought only Chase's primo Sopranos could reach.

Sopranos creator David Chase returns to New Jersey, but his film loses its way
February 4, 2013
An exhilarating rush of keenly observant, sometimes barbed, occasionally funny and often poignant detail, and all of it feels right.

Unfortunately, Chase's failed group is no more interesting than one you or your friends might have played in.

Beautifully captures the impact of the British rock 'n' roll invasion on young teens in the suburbs (I was there). . .But even with accurate details, the film loses its way.

While it has a personal feel, the performances are a mixed bag and it too often resorts to nostalgic cliches, especially when the music isn't playing.
January 11, 2013
...a rollicking comedy about growing up and striking out

Not Fade Away is about the imperishable idea of youth and the promise of endless wide-open possibility. Time will always be on its side.

Not Fade Away is intimate, episodic and achingly poignant. It's also woefully insubstantial. Chase has created less of a dramatic narrative and more of an awkwardly paced, formulaic collage.

Good- although I think it would work better as a TV series. I wish there was a season 2.

The movie is a psalm to those who, far from pursuing the path of the Rolling Stones, stayed trapped under a rock.
January 5, 2013
I don't mean to belittle the memory of an entire decade, except when I do.
January 5, 2013
Because its more about intertwining themes than it is about obvious plot and conflict, it has melancholic energy. It revels in the mystery, appreciation, and ultimately creation of art-from a guy who was empowered and inspired by rock himself.
January 5, 2013
A wistful, bittersweet remembrance of the emerging '60s counterculture.
January 4, 2013
Not Fade Away is the greenest film of the new year, recycling '60s cliches with alacrity.
January 4, 2013
God save us from boomer nostalgia and its endless idealization of the '60s.
