Blockbuster, Oscar bait or something else? '60s nostalgia by David Chase
David Chase's movie earned mixed reviews when it debuted at the Toronto Film Festival, but when the creator of "The Sopranos" makes his first feature film, and it co-stars Tony Soprano himself, James Gandolfini, we're in regardless. "Not Fade Away" is the story of Jersey kids with rock 'n' roll dreams in the 1960s (Gandolfini plays the father of one of them), which is not exactly a new story. Then again, mob stories have been around a long time too, and look what Chase did with them.
