The wife gives it five stars. And I think that this would be a really enjoyable movie, and a great intro to the character that is Chet Baker, for those who know absolutely nothing about him. Now, I am no expert myself about Baker, but even I know enough to know that this movie - for whatever reason(s) - leaves out a heck of a lot of important stuff, including the beginning and ending.
What? In a movie about Chet Baker it isn't important to show the revolutionary style that made him famous in the first place? It isn't important to show the rise to fame? And though the beginning of the film tells us that we are picking up the story during his attempted "comeback," it isn't important as to why he is "coming back?" And no portrayal of the final years of touring? No portrayal, beyond the mere mention, of the circumstances of the death?
For the snippet of the story that this film deals with, it is a really quality and engrossing film. Having said that, if you think you know the Chet Baker saga from watching this film, you have unfortunately been deprived of some of the most important aspects of that saga.
