Critic Reviews for Blaze
The film isn't a jigsaw puzzle, where every piece neatly fits into a greater whole; it's more like a drunken night of people sitting around and remembering their old friend, warts and all.
Blaze is more affecting than most other live-hard/die-ugly music biopics.
The daring of Ethan Hawke as a filmmaker is that he shapes his scenes not in a conventional way but as randomly observed slivers of life that amble and glide along to Blaze's dawdling spirit.
It's a tour de force of oversized charm and verve, a living ballad of song-writer-as-ramblin'-man (and almost compulsive screw-up).
