The story of early '70s Memphis rock group Big Star is fraught with loss and conflict, but the group left three albums of shimmering pop and gut-wrenching anguish that rockers like Michael Stipe and Paul Westerberg later championed. A commercial failure during its time, Big Star has been perpetually rediscovered and celebrated over the last 30 years. That process is chronicled in Big Star: Nothing Can Hurt Me, a new documentary (reviewed page 32) spanning bandleader Alex Chilton's early fame as a vocalist for the Box Tops through Big Star's tumultuous career and recent tributes. Exhaustive archival work and masterful editing earn the film a place in the essential rock documentary canon.
