A seminal band in the history of alternative music, Big Star has been cited as an influence by artists including REM, The Replacements, Belle & Sebastian, Elliot Smith and Flaming Lips, to name just a few. With never-before-seen footage and photos of the band, in-depth interviews and a rousing musical tribute by the bands they inspired, BIG STAR: NOTHING CAN HURT ME is a story of artistic and musical salvation.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: A well-sourced account of a perfect, broken dream, Drew DeNicola and Olivia Mori's slightly shaggy documentary captures what it's like to discover music so good it seems as if it were made just for you.
Fresh: Overall, it's still a skillfully rendered narrative that should satisfy fans and pique the interest of the uninitiated.
Fresh: DiNicola explores the specifics of Big Star's implosion as well as anyone can, considering band breakups are much like shattered love affairs: Who ever really knows what went wrong?
Fresh: The story that writer-director Drew DeNicola and producer-director Olivia Mori reconstruct has the power to move even those who prefer Mozart or Lil Wayne.
