"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.
The band's trajectory will not be unfamiliar to anyone who has read a musician's biography or watched a few episodes of Behind The Music (formation > inspiration > destruction) so the only real variables are in how the story is being told.
There's a distinct lack of archive footage of the band in their prime, but the director makes a good stab at bringing to life the studio sessions that produced such treasures as The Ballad of El Goodo.
