BORN TO BE BLUE REVIEWED
“Born to Be Blue” has to be the first biopic about Chet Baker. Baker doesn’t get the fan fervor from younger Jazz fans like he got a few decades ago. I think that boils down to changing demographics and his downfall losing its appeal. That does sound creepy bringing up how misfortune can breed fan interest. But, here we are!
Ethan Hawke continues to slay these roles, as he embraces his indie cinema leanings. I’m not sure how much is him and how much is the Linklater influence, but the man deserves his props. The same goes for Carmen Ejogo, as she continues to be the best actress in most movies. Stunning work all around, but I feel that it runs a smidge too short. Oh well, now I’m off to listen to some Jazz records and shoot some rats.
