We have taken some photos of "The Music Never Stopped". They represent actual movie quality.
Being a huge lover and appreciator of music, I have wanted to see this movie for a very long time. I finally sat down and watched it and I am so glad I had the opportunity to do so. I have never listened to the Grateful Dead and I don't think it is necessary to listen to them just to see this movie. If you have ever been moved by music, then you should see this movie. The story is simply moving and so extremely powerful. J.K. Simmons is a fantastic actor and is surrounded by grade A actors as well. I have always believed in the power of music and this moving has really brought that idea to life. I love this movie and will cherish it forever. Please do yourself a favor and see this movie. It will change your life.
Drove 45 minutes to see this movie. Not sorry I did. Very good. Enjoyed it more than Blue Valentine. Very touching, you could hear sniffles in the theater at the end. I was able to relate when my mom tore my posters off my bedroom wall of Chicago...She thought they were " Chicago Seven" that were on trial back in the 70's. OMG!! Made me laugh. Anyway, my husband and I enjoyed this a lot.
This review is from: The Music Never Stopped (DVD) The trailer indicates that the family is dealing with a health issue that is solved by crossing musical preferences. It is much more -- anyone who is in their 60's or 70's now or knows someone who is will see that person in the father and his preference for music of his era. The young man, who is now in his 40's lived intensely what so many went through in one form or another in the 1960's and 70's. It is about generations getting out of their "my way is the right way" fix and finding the beauty in other's preferences, and through their acceptance find love and forgiveness.
Lots of memories are released from this wonderful and meaningful film that speaks to those times and the powwerful healing role of music/If this film had the hollywood budget dollars it would be in every theater in San Francisco,anyone who loves great classic rock can not help but moved by the story and superb acting not to be missed!!!
I am normally not a movie buff and find it very difficult to sit through any film, at home or at the theatre. I happened on this movie on cable today after waiting for it to come to a local cinema. I must say it was probably one of the best movies I have seen in my lifetime and was so sorry when it ended. The music was wonderful, family interaction was true and well done. You will laugh at triumphs, cry at times and just enjoy the music. I think I will have to watch it again tomorrow.
This review is from: The Music Never Stopped (DVD) This is a great movie about a father who hadn't heard from his son in almost twenty years, and then one day out of the blue his whole world is turned upside down.
This review is from: The Music Never Stopped (DVD) As a Deadhead and more importantly a longtime lover and appreciator of music, this movie hit me right in the heart. Movies that focus primarily on the relationship between a father and son never seem to fall short, and this film is no exception. But what makes it so special is the focus on music as a deeply personal, healing and changing force in two individuals' lives. I can not count how many times in my life music has come to the rescue and gotten me through rough times. I'm honored to add this one to my collection and I'm sure I'll watch it many more times!
I was very touched by this film. Music is very much a large part of my life, so I could relate to that aspect of this film, as well as dealing with loved ones who suffer from memory issues. The bond and bridge that music can provide in life shouldn't be underestimated. This movie is worth more than one viewing. Glad I stumbled upon it.
This review is from: The Music Never Stopped (DVD) I saw this movie and liked it so much that I had to buy it for my father for his birthday. My parents loved the movie even more than I expected. It conveys a powerful message which could be eye-opening for anyone who sees it. As someone who is passionate about music and the Grateful Dead in particular, I especially appreciate the way this film ventures into the emotional realm on those subjects.
This review is from: The Music Never Stopped (DVD) I love this movie! I got goosebumps watching it. My mother that is not a fan of the Grateful Dead like I am loved it as well. This is a must see movie for all!
What a touching and meaningful movie. I went to see it because I'm a fan of the Grateful Dead, but that is not the emphasis of the movie. I highly recommend this film! Why in the world is this movie not showing at theaters everywhere? There must be a real mafia in the film business to keep this masterpiece out of view. See it now!
I was wishing the other day I could find a movie I loved. Stumbled on this and SO glad I did, as it fulfilled that wish. It was a wonderful moving, and one that I will watch again (rare for me). Wonderful story, superb acting, and great music. Can't ask for much more. It touches a place inside each of us.
I saw this film at Sundance and right away it became my favorite for the year. This film has a great and touching story, but so many do. What sets this film apart from so many others, is that it isnt trying too hard. The idea behind this film is simple and it is simply made -- no ultra crazy cinematography, no avant-garde editing. The script is also simple in the fact that it doesnt try to add ficticious elements to real life problems to try and make them ultra dramatic. This film really gets down to the clean basics of film making -- just substance, no fluff. Aside from production, I really enjoyed this film becasue I am a huge fan of 60's and 70's rock and roll. All of the visible themes of this film are interweaved with being able to indentify with music. Anyone who has ever been moved by a particular song, album, or band will "get" this film. Anyone who grew up while the Beatles, Bob Dylan, Grateful Dead, and Hendrix were all releasing music and during the Vietnam War will be able to relate to the emotion of this story. This Film does not take place in the 60's, but relives it. Without giving away to much of the plot, I will simply say that this film is about the relationship between a father and a son -- both love music and are moved by the music of their day, but dont have much else in common. This is a must see, at least once.
As a 1960s person, I've been waiting for a movie like this. Sometimes in a difficult time, or the loss of a loved one, I've found that taking a walk with our Alaska Husky Avu, and singing "Born to Be Wild" or "Truckin" or other anthem from that period, helps. Even during the 2008 financial meltdown,the music was there---So here is an Indy Movie (only one copy on the Video store shelf) which makes that music a very special part of a troubled family --where son ran off and now has a brain tumor and very limited memory.The 60s type music comes into the family story, when a miracle is needed to help the son. We (and he) hear the Grateful Dead,Cream, the Beatles, and many more.Even five seconds of one of my favorite groups "Steppenwolf." You'll see how the music hits some centers of the son's brain ---how much and how enduring ----you'll see, and hear it all! The music, as strong as it is, does not eclipse the story of the family. That's what makes this movie extra special.Some say the key relationship is between the son and his father. But keep an eye on the mother --who loves her husband and son a lot. She has moments of strength!!Hope you enjoy the movie.....Keep Truckin and Stay Wild!!!Earl
This review is from: The Music Never Stopped (Amazon Instant Video) I've seen this twice now, because I wanted my family to watch it too. My husband and I loved the soundtrack of Dylan, Grateful Dead, the Band, etc. My 20-something children liked the acting and the story; and we all appreciated an entertaining movie that explores the miracle of the human brain.I won't call it heartwarming because I hate heartwarming. But it's a rewarding, carefully made movie, based on a real case study, of a family confronting some big mistakes before it's too late. The music is great and hardly ever stops. Good choice for a group, or family, to watch together.
The fact that this movie comes from real events makes it all the more powerful. The film not only takes the lucky viewer on a wonderful, emotional ride, it exposes you to the growing field of Music Therapy, which is serving to improve the lives of more and more people who in prior years might have been left to die alone and forgotten in some mental ward.The music, in essence, is the main character as the film demonstrates how powerful it is in awakening memories and bringing otherwise withdrawn people out into the present place. The actors are deep and deliver their roles superbly and believably. The father-son dynamic, while not ground-breakingly original, is very touching and keeps you intrigued as it evolves through the events and the songs and the stories.I picked it up in DVD rental store without knowing anything about it other than the description on the box. 2 hours later it had become one of my all-time favorite movies. I laughed and cried through most of the movie. It is a rare gem.
This review is from: The Music Never Stopped (DVD) I have recommended this to a lot of people, and everyone loves it! If you are a music lover then it's a must see.
Just watched this tonight. What an excellent movie. Very well made. Enjoyable for all. Never even this movie existed. Excellent acting.
Great music! The story is real life and has its ups and downs just like life. It made me laugh and feel the joy and pain. Made me cry at the end. If you like real life movies this is a must see!
Great movie based on a book by one my favorite writers. The importance of music has always been known to me, but gets a deeper meaning in this movie, played by such great actors. For me the highlight however is to hear one of the best songs ever written by Richie Furay and played by his first mayor band, Buffalo Springfield (with Neil Young and Stephen Stills): 'Kind Woman'. It has major 'airtime' in this movie and rightfully so. Richie made the song a classic with Buffalo Springfield and his own group, the legendary POCO. To hear it in this new fresh movie defines the song as a major classic, and Richie deserves every bit of respect and glamour for it. Let's hear it for the good guys!
