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

Playing the biopic charts with straight-ahead attitude, "Crazy" is as steady and conservative as its subject, country/jazz guitar phenom Hank Garland, is impulsive, akimbo and troubled. Though formulaic, the film is also unusually classy and well turned-out for a period production made on a small indie budget, and displays genuine sensitivity toward forward-looking artists in the seemingly opposing fields of country and jazz.

Guitar virtuoso Steve Vai, executive produced this great flick about the the life of studio guitar great Hank Garland ( played by Waylon Payne) who during the 50's and 60's played with some of the biggest musicians to ever pass through Nashville including Elvis, Roy Orbison, and many others as well as being the first white musician to cross over to the mostly black jazz scene which was a big deal in Nashville during this time period. Steve Vai makes a small cameo as Hank Williams.
