Big Star Film in Wide Release

Big Star ImageThe highly anticipated film about the amazing band Big Star, Nothing Can Hurt Me, is now in wide release.  Or at least as much as a film about a brilliant yet tragic and influential indie band could ever be in theaters.  Many writers have commented on the film and we have collected a few of those reviews here.  Once we see this movie, you can expect our review on Your Tuesday Afternoon Alternative!  If you have a review of the film that you would like to share, let us know at drjwudr at gmail!
