Not Fade Away features the rose-colored reminisces of Sopranos creator David Chase. In the 1960s, Chase was a drummer in a rock band that never made it, and not so coincidentally, Douglas (John Magaro) plays drums in a rock band that never makes it. The central conflict, outside of the band's uphill climb, is between Douglas and his father (James Gandolfini), who is just too stubborn to see that his son has dreams, man. For a movie that is not-so-loosely based on real events—and real events that happened to the guy who wrote and directed the movie—Not Fade Away sure seems to have a pedestrian, surface view of everything. It's all common, predictable and sanitized. This trip down memory lane isn't one worth taking.
