10 thoughts on “Nothing Can Hurt Me: The Big Star Story

  1. Wow. What a disappointment.

    So The Big Star Story starts with the Auer/Stringfellow reunion shows, and ends with a hastily-assembled SXSW tribute to Alex Chilton?

    If that stuff was tagged on to the last 10 minutes of a real documentary about the band, okay, cool. But if this trailer is representative of the film, well, no thanks.

  2. Thanks for the post! We should note, this is not the trailer but the promotional video we made for our KickStarter last year.

    The film is currently in post-production and we hope to premier early 2012. The festival circuit will be the first stop, followed by (hopefully) a wider theatrical release. Streaming/DVD/Blu-Ray etc…down the line, of course.

    Best place to keep up on “What’s going ahn” (he he), is our Facebook page:


  3. Here’s the real deal trailer, with some new interview footage of Jody Stephens and Andy Hummel, plus some archival stuff of Alex Chilton and Chris Bell. Saw the movie last night at the NYC premiere- it’s truly the doc that Big Star fans have been waiting for, and I’m sure it’ll be cherished for a long time to come!


  4. Alex died while the documentary was being created. Obviously the story changed when that happened. Their story is incredible before you hear a single song, but after you have thoroughly examined their discography it becomes unbelievable. Big Star should be in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and Chilton should be in the Songwriting Hall of Fame. The music stands the test of time, I listen to it daily.
