  • The result is an observed story, without the why of Big Star's musical disintegration that is at the heart of their enduring legend.

  • Rewards true fans while enticing the uninitiated.

  • It feels thorough, and very affectionate. It just needs more of a narrative hook, a through-line from start to finish that can enhance the story for those not yet in the club.

  • All the making-of footage and scenes offering a taste of Memphis in the '70s will probably thrill established Big Star lovers in a big way.

  • "Big Star: Nothing Can Hurt Me" is no doubt going to please fans of the cult rock band, but the rest of us may feel like outsiders - not put off by the proceedings, really, but somewhat mystified as to what all the fuss is about.

  • [Documents] the band's coming together and falling apart and [offers] a passionate tribute to its brilliant, beautiful music.

    I have to admit that I had no history in hearing of Big Star or their work but I am glad for the opportunity to have seen this documentary and been educated about them. Their influence is widespread within the community if not with the public in general. Something to consider for your record collection.
