All Things Must Pass: The Rise and Fall of Tower Records has exactly the kind of brisk vibe it needs. It fits the store and the characters involved. Big thanks to Colin Hanks.
All Things Must Pass is not just record store nostalgia peppered with sex, drugs, rock 'n' roll. It also presents a look at America's appreciation and respect for its talented working class, a time that also seems to be a bygone era. You'll wish that more company heads today possessed the vision, took the chances and had the loyalty to employees that Russ Solomon had. When he started, some folks thought he'd surely flop. Instead, his stores and even the design of them became popular parts of our pop culture. This is a fascinating documentary from first-time director Colin Hanks and it's in theaters now.
