Big Star: Nothing Can Hurt Me is a 2012 documentary film about American rock band Big Star, directed by Drew DeNicola and Olivia Mori.



The film chronicles the critical acclaim, lack of commercial success and the cult following of the band [1]


On review aggregator website Rotten Tomatoes, the film received a 92% approval rating, from 34 critics, with an average score of 7/10. [2] The Village Voice's Stephanie Zacharek praised director Drew DiNicola's documentary, writing that it "honors that sense of mystery, telling the band's story as if whispering it through the cracks in a wall. There's very little footage of the band themselves—their elusive magic found its truest expression in the studio rather than before a live audience."[3]
