||Synopsis: On a train, Keith and Mick chat about the blues and the Rolling Stones are born. Douglas and Joe chat in front of a New Jersey music store, and a band is born: as Douglas's sister tells us, it's one of many that don't make it. We follow Douglas from high school (1963-64), when he sees himself as a loser, into the band, playing drums and singing backup - then as the front man. There are tensions, a breakup, an audition in front of a major player, and decisions. Douglas pursues Grace, a country-club gal with hip sensibilities who believes in him. There's also his father, working class, wanting Douglas to apply himself as he watches his own life fill with regrets. Written by <[email protected]>

Watch Not Fade Away - Alternative Versions.
"Not Fade Away" is one of those movies that leaves you with a bad taste
after you watch the movie; it's like watching a movie by the resident
cool kid in town, straddling the prettiest girl in one hand and on the
other hand, going on about how he overcame his meager upbringing,
dysfunctional family, disloyal friends to become who he is. The story
might be genuine and the tribulations might be authentic but it's just
the way it is told that makes it so unlikeable.
The movie does not have an ending (just an absurd tacked on one),
creates handfuls of subplots that it never bothers to resolve and
indulges heavily in the writer/director's own world of self-references
and pointless pettiness. After furiously producing subplots like it's a
pilot of a TV show it just ends, giving that unresolved
what-ever-happened-to feeling that as a moviegoer I hate. The young
Italian-American protagonist who is probably the writer/director
himself doesn't have a real story to tell or a point to make. The story
just meanders on and on, the key tension points leading absolutely
nowhere. Rather than create a compelling story, the movie demands some
sort of adulation for what it presents and ultimately insults the
viewer assuming the viewer should feel privileged to hear the story
rather than earning its merits.
"Not Fade Away" is advertised as a movie about a band trying to make it
big; however this movie is more of a bizarre bake of 60s set pieces.
There is the vintage music equipment show - the Rickenbachers, the
Gretchs, the vintage Fenders and others; the vintage car show and then
the 60s records - primarily an obsession with the Rolling Stones that
are displayed in their big, shiny and loud glory. While the audience
who were teenagers in the 60s might appreciate the shiny items of
desire, the rest will find these shiny objects do not fill up a movie
or compensate for a story. It's like a glossy vintage advertising
brochure - pretty girls, rebellious rock stars and shiny things but not
a story to tell.
The other major problem in the movie is the absolute opacity of its
sub-characters. The father, the mother, the girlfriend, the band mates,
the girlfriend's sister, the families are completely and utterly
opaque. They keep doing bizarre things without showing or being to
infer why they are doing what they are doing. Perhaps it's some sort of
a 60s thing, a band thing, an Italian-American thing or a 60s band
thing but I wouldn't know. The movie doesn't bother to really explain
or resolve anything and it just bubbles up here and there and then it's
gone. The movie is just a sequence of these strung together and it just
makes all the characters unlikeable and tiring.
I like rock and roll movies but in this movie rock music neither serves
as a backdrop for a personal story nor tells a story about the rock and
roll greatness. The 60s backdrop overpowers the movie and the story
feels like it's about a bunch of teenagers so in love with themselves
that they feel they are the privileged ones. One scene comes to mind;
an aunt comments, "I hear rock and roll keeps you young" to which our
protagonist churlishly replies, "rock and roll is an art form. Does
Dostoyevsky keep you young?"
