It may be as much of a challenge to write objectively about a Cameron Crowe film as it is for his alter-ego William Miller (Patrick Fugit) to write objectively about the band Stillwater that he has come to regard as family. I may like to think of as myself a film critic, but when it comes to Crowe I am also a fan. Say Anything... (1989) and Singles (1992) are sweet, funny, and original films, whose sincere emotion stays with me; I was incredibly proud of the commercial and critical success with Jerry Maguire (1996). He has done nothing in Almost Famous to shake my personal love for his lyrical work.
