    This review is from: Not Fade Away (DVD)

    “Not Fade Away” (2012 release; 112 min.) is the debut feature film from writer-director David “The Sopranos” Chase. The story is very loosely based on Chase’s days of growing up in New Jersey in the early 1960s, with Douglas (played by John Magaro) standing in for Chase. The movie starts with a retelling of the infamous meeting between Mick Jagger and Keith Richards on a train in the early 60s, and not long thereafter we see the Stones appear on TV and Douglas and his friends want to start a band “like the Rolling Stones and the Beatles”. The voice over is from Douglas’ sister, informing us she is going to tell “the story of this band nobody has ever heard off”. There are many side stories and characters in the movie, none more so than Douglas’ dad, played by James “Tony Soprano” Gandolfini, which in my opinion was very risky: how can you see this man play yet another Italian patriach with an anger problem and not think Tony Soprano?

    But in the end the story line is secondary to the music and the time capsule of the 60s that you find in every frame of this movie. The movie soundtrack was supervised by Steven Van Zandt, yes, that Steven Van Zandt, and he does an incredible job not only compiling a ton of great 60s music (and thankfully not always the same ol’ same ol’ standards), but the band Douglas and his friends are putting together do some nice tunes as well. This movie is eye-candy from start to finish, I couldn’t stop marveling at the incredible amount of details that went into framing this movie visually. Chase’s writing is pretty crisp throughout the movie. At one point the band is close to signing and their would-be manager tells them that for the next 6 months they should play 7 days a week, 2 sets a night, at every and any possible bar in New York. One of the guys in the band protests and says “we can’t do that, our music is art, it would demystify our music for our fans”. To which the would-be manager answers: “Music is a business. The Beatles played for 2 years in Hamburg, Germany in strip joints.” End of discussion, ha!

    It is clear that this movie is a labor of love for David Chase, and at that it succeeds entirely. While the story line is lacking a major dramatic undercurrent, there is plenty enough other things that kept my interest in the movie from start to finish. In the end, it is all about the music in this movie, so if you are not really into music (or 60s music to be precize), save yourself the trouble. But if you are, like me, a huge music fan, this movie will pretty much delight from start to finish. For those interested, the movie’s soundtrack is available separately and brings a great collection of 26 songs from that era.

    I really enjoyed this film. Loved how the events of the time didn’t overshadow the main character’s focus on his dream: becoming a rock star. Fantastic performances from the lead (I felt like I knew Douglas in high school — he was that guy who was suddenly cool because he was on stage) and surely all the supporting characters. Another amazing performance by James Gandolfini, who is perfect in this role. His wife, played by Molly Price, is so spot-on bitter and harsh, it’s hard to believe she was acting.
    Loved it.

British housebuilders fall on signs of market intervention

Shares in Britain's housebuilders and property developers fell on Friday after the government and the Bank of England signalled they were ready to intervene to cool the country's surging house market. British house prices have risen by 11 percent over the last year, benefiting house builders but leading to concerns that a bubble could develop. Finance minister George Osborne said late on Thursday he would now give the Bank of England stronger powers to curb mortgage lending, while the Bank's Governor Mark Carney also noted that interest rates could rise sooner than expected, in his strongest warning yet. Shares in the country's biggest housebuilders including Barratt Developments (LSE: BDEV.L - news) and Persimmon (Frankfurt: OHP.F - news) , fell over 4 percent, dragging down the FTSE 100 blue-chip index, while Bovis Homes Group, Taylor Wimpey (LSE: TW.L - news) , Bellway and Berkeley Group, were down between 3 and 4 percent.
