A movie directed by Cameron Crowe

Elizabethtownhas all of the elements of a great Cameron Crowe movie, but none of the Cameron Crowe vision that madeAlmost Famouswork. It's mostly a series of sweet moments, each capped with the right song at the right time; in fact, the soundtrack … see full wiki

The headline for this review is actually a direct quote from Cameron Crowe's screenplay for Elizabethtown. It was this line that made me buy the screenplay and give the movie a second chance. My first viewing of Elizabethtown left me feeling kind of flat.    E-town is about those dark nights of the soul, where things just don't seem as if they're going to get any better. And then you realize that you're right – they don't. They get worse. In Crowe's world this is prime time for …

Elizabethtown (Screenplay)

Even before hitting the screens, the PR machine was wild with rumors about re-writes, cuts, revisions, and doom so that when ELIZABETHTOWN finally entered the theaters it was a short gasp before it was gone. Didn't see it in the theaters, but watching this little film on DVD makes this viewer wonder just why the movie was so poorly received. Yes, it is lengthy (over two hours) for a story that is fairly slight, and yes, it is a bit self indulgent even for writer director Cameron Crowe, and it is …
