In the crush of releases late in the year, it's bound to happen that one or two might miss your attention, so if you didn't get a chance to catch up with "The Sopranos" creator David Chase's feature directorial "Not Fade Away" last December, now's your shot to give it another go.

Well folks, today is the Mayan Apocalypse, the official end of the Mesoamerican Long Count Calendar -- which doesn't sound so bad -- and, possibly, the world as we know it, which sounds pretty terrible. If we're all still here tomorrow (or tonight, for that matter), there is a delectable spread of filmic morsels on this weekend's menu. The latest Judd Apatow feature, Tom Cruise's new moody thriller, the first direct cinematic adaptation of Jack Kerouac's most famous work, and Kathryn Bigelow's second venture into modern warfare will grace the nation's silver screens, and we would encourage you to indulge where possible. So, toast the end of planet Earth while you tell us what you hope you'll be seeing in the comments section below. It probably wouldn't hurt to knock on wood or rub a rabbit's foot too. No, seriously: we really want to see "Gangster Squad" next year.

For a film that’s ostensibly set to the vibrant pulse of early ‘60s rock 'n' roll and blues -- The Rolling Stones, the early Beatles, Bo Diddley, etc. -- David Chase’s directorial debut, “Not Fade Away,” sure has a curious, circuitous and eventually long-winded tempo. Set in 1964, just a few months after the Kennedy assassination with Vietnam, the Civil Rights movement and the sexual revolution in the air, “The Sopranos” creator’s ambitions are decidedly simpler and much more small scale.

With all the big movies swinging their dicks as December winds down, we nearly forgot about David Chase's "Not Fade Away." The feature debut from "The Sopranos" creator hasn't been making many waves, but it's still coming to theaters, hoping some of that old time rock 'n roll will find an audience.

When you want to get the music of legends like The Rolling Stones, James Brown and Bob Dylan in your movie, securing the licensing can be both tricky and expensive, and prohibitive for many filmmakers whose budgets may already be strained. But that's not the case for David Chase's "Not Fade Away," because in his back pocket, he has the secret weapon of Steven Van Zandt.

Guys, guitars, coming-of-age, young love...it's a rite of passage for many young men with LPs, late nights and romance all coming together in a certain time and place when anything seems possible. And that's the feeling "The Sopranos" creator David Chase is trying to evoke with his feature directorial debut "Not Fade Away." Premiering at the New York Film Festival earlier this fall, things have been quiet around the movie, but as it gears up to hit theaters, the marketing machine is slowly waking up.

As the movie entered common film-buff conversation, talk persisted that David Chase’s directorial debut “Not Fade Away” was autobiographical. The creator of “The Sopranos” had crafted a nostalgic tale set in the era in which he came of age, with a young group of mavericks dreaming of stardom from their garage band setups, and many claimed we were watching the life story of the TV legend. Speaking to the New York Film Festival audience upon the film’s premiere, Chase was quick to squash that talk immediately.
