Movie Diary 3/31/2016

Born to Be Blue (Robert Budreau, 2015). A piece of Chet Baker’s life, mostly in the mid-to-late 1960s. Not without clumsy moments, but the movie has some sense of jazz, and Ethan Hawke is fully sympatico with the artist-junkie prototype – except that Hawke takes it well past the prototype, to a place where an actor’s performance seems to be elevating our consciousness all on its own. (full review 4/8)
