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.
If Blaze Foley wanted his legend to live on rather than any kind of popularity, then Hawke has helped in that regard. He's made a film that rambles, scrambles, fights its way to the finish line, exactly the way its subject would have wanted it to be.
