"Good looking people, they've got no spine. Their art never lasts."
Almost Famous might not be one of my *most* favorite movies, but it definitely has a style that I strive to imitate, whether or not I'm always aware of it. This scene is one of my most favorites. Cameron Crowe may err a bit on the sentimental side, especially in his latest movies, but I don't care. Almost Famous has a nearly PERFECT script, and in most of his movies he has a way of utilizing the schmaltz into connection. What Lester Bangs says in this scene is something I think about phrasing often, but I could never be as successful as Crowe. Dangit.
