great act

Thomas A very successful film adapted from COBB's novel. Jeff bridges is now rock bottom, playing a famous country singer for a while. A four-year-old child who appears to be in love with the sign that life is waiting to change and change.

I had heard this issue before seeing the film in Istanbul, and frankly it was a little ordinary to me when I looked at it. But choosing the film was more effective than the Jeff bridges in the mix. The man is still very good, as always, and the golden sphere that he has received deserves it to the end. He plays a very challenging role as a child's playboy, and the songs we have listened to throughout the film are like the Collin Farrell, which he says directly, and in this, we can call it an up version of the character big Lebesgue, it reminded. For example, the first sensation is the drop-off stage of the loo ...

I will not go on to mention the story of Colin Farrell, Filmin is definitely a weak link himself. I have heard criticism of bad actors about him for years, but this prejudice has never occurred and I can see clearly that the phone booth filming is very fond of me, but plays a relatively simple role, except for the parts he says in this movie.

In fact, it has come very successfully from a very high risk of being overly sensitive to the viewer's detachment from the film. Maggie gallantly is the best assistant actress in this film, as it is in the previous films, especially stranger than fiction, although she is not the only one who is the only Oscar nominee for film in, Ryan Bingham in the role of the lead singer of the band who accompanied the bad Blake in the bowling alley in the film was also nominated for the best film music for the best film music with the weary kind name piece written for the film at the end.

A movie full of natural, beautiful and music that needs to be watched.

Ughh it's awful, and so damned good

It drops you right in there, in the uncomfortable stuff you don't want to see or feel but what can you expect from some of the best actors.

They're so good you kinda have no choice, you're gonna feel it, raw, awful, wonderful.

I like how this movie doesn't wallow aimlessly in the shallow nonsense that's too often out there these days it seems that we have to wade through to find a decent movie. Or drop you into a chaotic depressing movie, and then it ends there..confusingly..with no point...that's not art, it's a writer on drugs and producers with no grey cells.

It's so damn good to be able to rely on real stuff, true talent and brilliant movies from these guys.

doesn't live up to all the accolade it has sparked

Not everyone deserves a second chance, what do we see in Bad Blake (Bridges)? A 57-year-old scuzzy musician on the brink of bankruptcy, touring in small bowling alleys (hey! it is the Dude himself back in his favorite haunt) and bars to make ends meet, what is more pathetic, he is an inveterate alcoholic. But, he is a legend of his profession, though he has been on the downturn for too long and alcohol seriously bogs down his songwriting gift along with his health, now he basically banks on his old discography to attract his die-hard/desperate groupies and holds an invidious grudge towards his protégé Tommy Sweet (Farrell), who is the red-hot country star now, but becomes more and more independent from him.

CRAZY HEART is Scott Cooper's debut film which finally won Jeff Bridges an Oscar more for his overdue status (5th time is the charm) than the calibre of the performance per se. There is no denying of the country-veteran finesse on stage from the musically inclined Bridges, which rightfully should also be obliged to a killing soundtrack cooked up by Mr. Burnett and the late Stephen Bruton. Mr. Bridges certainly goes out on a limb to make Bad Blake a thorough and convincing transformation from a down-and-out performer lolling in his dim motels watching Mexican soapie to a smitten soul resuscitated by a May-December romance with a young singer- mother-cum-journalist Jean Craddock (Gyllenhaal), we see him drinking, performing, vomiting, meeting-cute, touring with Sweet, parenting, drinking, panicking, repenting, drinking, vomiting until he passes out in his bathroom, then drying-out and finally he can write some new materials, the trajectory is ever-familiar, but proffers carte blanche for Mr. Bridges to rescue his character from his self-destructive morass and render as much sympathy as possible.

But the plot takes some arbitrary licenses in their doomed romance, for instance, if one intends to blame Bad's alcoholism for the incident causes the riff between him and Jean, the approach should have been more specific, in lieu of simply making a toddler disappear even before Bad is visibly well-oiled, which seems to imply that Jean is over-reacting in the aftermath (because the scenario could happen to everyone other than those who are under the influence), to shift some burden from Bad's behavior to Jean, and harshly intimate that she might not be such a saintly savior as we see, albeit in our moral compass, whoever is brave enough to kiss that alcohol and smoke soused mouth, then subsequently falls in love with a character like Bad Blake, must be a self-sacrificing angel!

Ms. Gyllenhaal usurps an Oscar nomination too, but her character is pigeonholed into a generic love interest slot, with no further delving into her psyche except for her overbearing maternal protection towards her son, also in the love-making shots, there are tangible awkwardness between her and Bridges, perhaps, both are too self-aware of their gaping age difference, against Cooper's conspicuous endeavor to project Jean in the centre during their making out, to pinpoint that she is literally enjoying the process, which only becomes embarrassingly risible, betrays a stinking whiff of self-boasting of a unpleasant, elder man's potency. Colin Farrell, during his limited screen-time, brings a breezy personality with his undisclosed singing bent, in a surprising way, his Tommy Sweet is not a blatant ingrate as we had anticipated (mostly influenced by Blake's steely taciturnity whenever his name pops up). At bottom, CRAZY HEART is a slightly above-par independent charmer, nevertheless doesn't live up to all the accolade it has sparked.
