Movie Info

Brimming with the sounds and personalities of 1950s Nashville, CRAZY tells the story of legendary guitar player Hank Garland who played music on his own terms with the likes of Roy Orbison, Patsy Cline, Hank Williams, and Elvis Presley. CRAZY details the life of a star burned out too quickly: Garland pioneered music from country to jazz, but a hot temper and whirlwind romantic life lead to early tragedy. This is the never-before-told true tale of one of the greatest American musicians of the past century.more

Audience Reviews for Crazy

Interesting movie that takes you back to 1950's Nashville and the real life drama of a lesser known backup guitarist that is famous for his style and arrangements from artists like Elvis, Roy Orbison and Patsy Cline. Unknown Waylon Payne does a pretty good job with this movie but the storyline is similar to any we have seen before. First off, Payne looks nothing like Garland and when you see the real life photos at the end of the movie, it surprised me they didn't even try to get the similarities. Ali Larter plays a similar role to most of her movies, the sultry wanted girl that ends up cheating on the husband. As good as some of the acting and music in this, the story is chopped up into so many different parts, it feels like a TV miniseries. However, the story becomes tragic and sad and this is what really draws you in to the world of blues country music in a rock n roll age. In the end, not a bad movie but I can see why it was unknown.

Solid biopic about the fascinating life of a country jazz phenom who worked with many Nashville greats like Elvis and Patsy Cline, and yet dealt w his own tragedy and heartbreak along w his volatile, fiercely independent streak.

Honestly wrought, touching, and extremely well acted by the enable cast, it overcomes it's flaws with moments of authenticity and clarity, and with heartfelt performances.

4 out of 5 jazzy guitar licks

The whole time I was watching this, I felt it was like watching a Lifetime Channel or Made For TV movie.It's worth watching if there's nothing else on or you pick it up for free at your local library like I did but it's nothing I'd pay to see
