How could you not love a film that casts one if its executive producer, guitarist Steve Vai, as the legendary Hank Williams? This film, inspired by the life of the great Nashville session guitarist Hank Garland, is a terrific music business biography. I knew Garland by name and was familiar with much of his country and early rock and roll work, but I wasn't aware that he also worked in the world of jazz. While a bit formulaic in portraying American racism in the 1950s and early 1960s, it is to be commended that the movie addresses the challenges faced by Garland and the black musicians he worked with as they sought to find partners that inspired them to new creative heights even though it would have been easier and safer to stay within the prescribed "color lines" of the times . Crazy also shows the less than fair accounting and label management practices that were relatively common during the 1950s as it tells the tale of Garland's rise and sad fall. The film doesn't portray him as a good man; it portrays him as a talented, flawed human being who was only at piece when he was making music. Waylon Payne gives a strong performance as Hank Garland as does Ali Larter as Hank's wife, Evelyn. Terrific period touches, ranging from clothing to furniture and decor to recording studios and touring vehicles, all elevate the look and feel of this modestly budgeted film which has been well shot and lit under the guidance of cinematographer Craig Haagensen. The film is solidly directed by Rick Bieber. This film definitely deserves to reach a wider audience.
